Default Starter grinding after start - replace?

My starter grinds for 2 seconds after startup. Is there any way to fix this without buying a new starter? The battery connectors are clean and the battery shows 12 volts and 14 volts when running so it's good.

sounds like the starter is hanging up and staying engaged, so reall way around it than replacing or rebuilding the starter, if that is the case.

i had this same exact problem for the last year in my car, and just 2 weeks ago was when the starter went out... i just replaced mine since i got it for pretty much nothing.

let me tell you though, jump starting the car with the clutch for a week while the starter was bad was not fun...
