Question about 1987 Ford Ranger
Replaced the started was running fine, then we get the grinding and cracking, and it won't start is there a special way the starter has to be aligned? How do you know if you installed it correctly? Help.
Check the flexplate, mine broke and replacing the plate fixed it

Well the starter will only really fit one way did all the bolts go in was the sheild that goes between the starter and trans in place it should fit flush top and bottom and there should be no gaps did you bend or misalign the torque converter sheild/cover good luck
