Question about 1996 Oldsmobile 88
When i turn the key to start the car , i get a grinding sound. This could happen up to 5-10 times before it cranks up. Sometimes it starts up on the first try . Please help
Hello first thing you need to do is take your starter out the starter drive gear either has busted teeth or the flywheel does with the starter removed mark the flywheel with chalk crayon so you no were you started from look at the teeth good keep turning the motor by hand checking till you come back to the original mark you made if there are no chips or missing teeth look at the look at the starter drive teeth there most likely busted or chewed down replace the starter goodluck please rate
