Has anyone had the starter motor keep running after car starts? I have a 2010 passion model, I have checked and cleaned conections to starter and battery and lubed starter switch but it still happens .Mostly when engine cold it will run for 30 -40 seconds then stop or if i shut off and restart one or two times then its okay.

What makes you think its the starter? There is an electric motor that runs for about the same time, it purges something, but cannot remember what right now???
Its loud enough you cannot miss it.

Running for 30-40 seconds after a cold start? You're hearing the secondary air injection pump. It's normal. :)
