I would need to hear the noise to be sure but when cranking the engine can only be one of two things. This could be the starter drive going bad or the flywheel has teeth worn or missing. Make sure the flywheel to torque converter bolts are tight when you remove the starter also. If you want to have this checked, a certified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic can come to your car's location to diagnose your car's noise.
