Question about 2000 Oldsmobile Alero
Initially on occasion over past few months car would crank then make grinding metal sound and wouldn't start on first try, then would start on 2nd try with no problem. 2 days ago car would crank, make metal grinding sound and would never start. Now the battery is dead after several attempts
You need to have your flywheel: replaced.Your starter motor engages against the fly wheel at the back of the motor. Every time your motor stops it tends to be in the same few positions (just the way things work) so there is more stress on some parts of your fly wheel than others. Because of this the teeth wear out on the fly wheel which means the starter can correctly engage on the fly wheel which is the grinding noise.
