Default Grinding noise when starting car

Just rebuilt the whole car these past four months. Car has been running fine except for occasionally hearing a grinding noise from under the intake manifold when I start the car. I feel it's the starter. Seems to be happening when it disengages (too slow). This is a brand new starter too. Does anyone know what would cause this or if its even the starter causing it?

Also, the ebrake light came on while driving, but the ebrake isn't engage. Any ideas?

Thanks!!!

ebrake means your low on brake fluid. as far as your grinding? i would remove the starter and check to make sure it looks ok and installed properly also peek into the clutch window and see if a foreign object might be in there.

sounds like a starter, easy fix
don't keep grinding it, might knock off a fly wheel tooth.. and that's a big job

if ebrake light comes on when not engaged it's probably cause you're low on brake fluid

Had the same grinding issue on one of my cars.
It had the issue you described, it wouldn't disengage quickly or all the way.
Swapped it out one morning, problem solved.
