F150 starter noise

1999 F150 cranks and starts followed by a screaming that seems to originate from the starter.There is no grinding noise.When this began it lasted but a fraction of a second,but has increased to several full seconds.

Your bendix drive is hanging up. Pull the starter, it could be a lube problem, but the bendix or possibly the entire starter will have to be replaced.

Hope this helps,
