Question about 1993 Honda Prelude
I'm not sure if it's the starter or what.
I crank it and i hear a loud grinding noise sometimes, but other times it starts right up.
After a few tries it always starts up, however.
I think it could be your Bendix drive. it is the part of the starter that comes out and touches your ring gear. sometimes it becomes worn out and would not catch the teeth of the ring gear right away and it would create this loud grinding noise.
on the other hand, if the Bendix drive is still ok, then there is a probability that your ring gear is the one which has a problem.
tnx 4 using fixya, keep me posted,
