Question about 1999 Jeep Cherokee
I have a T-Reg (1999) UK model, (right-hand drive) Cherokee Sport, with a 2.5L engine, manual transmission in which the starter motor doesn't completely disengage after the engine starts. Have replaced the starter and repaired loose contacts in starter switch. Could I still have either/or starter motor or switch, or do I have a electrical problem?
I don't think that the problem is elsewhere. The only other problem could be a sticking starter solonoid.
If I remember correctly the starter is a GM design and from my experience they all had a shim between the bolt holes and the engine block.

When you replaced the starter did any shims fall out?
I beleive there should be a shim there.
The starter is too close to the flywheel and is binding.
