If it is an after market starter, make sure it is manufactured in the usa or it will not alighn correct, you may have a fly wheel wear, shimming will only cause it to wear more (estimaternotfree@yahoo.com)

Why won't it start?


did you replace it with a new starter or a wrecker starter, maybe a bad starter. check the teeth on the flywheel they maybe damaged causing the starter not to engage. you may have to shim the starter. were there any shims when you pulled the original starter off.

I replaced my starter on my 94 ford ranger. my truck won't start, when it cranks, it makes a loud grinding noise. How can I fix this problem?


When buying starter motors it is essential that the starter pinion teeth are of the same pitch as the flywheel ring gear. Not all starters from the same make fit different engines because of this problem. However I would be checking that I had put the starter in the housing properly as any misalignment will cause your problem

95 Buick lesabre making loud grinding noise when starting. Once started runs and drives fine no noises


Yes, you are probably right about the spacer or shim. A salvage yard should have lots of them for little or nothing. When you remove the starter for the spacer, check the drive gear end of the starter for severe wear. If it is chewed off very bad, have a new drive gear put on, or replace the starter.

Replacing a starter on a 97 pontiac transport. New starter stil makes the grinding noise even with the provided shim in place. Hubby not having a good time, Help


I have replaced many of those type starters, and almost never need to use the shim. If the original starter was also aking a grinding noise, you may have a flywheel problem. (not good) If he has not tried it without the shim, have him remove the shim and see what it sounds like. He will only have to remove the front bolt, and loosen the rear bolt to remove the shim. Good luck

I own a 1989 ford bronco II. I've had it for years and worked fine. A while back I wasn't able to engage into first gear, go I replaced the manual transmission. After the tranny replacement, the starter...


even if you have all the teeth on your flywheel it may still be slightly warped. which is why you should replace the flywheel or have it checked when you replace the clutch. this could cause your issue by placing the teeth slightly too far away or too close to the starter gear.

I have gone through three starters on my truck in two weeks. My truck runs fine once starting but has trouble turning over. It's making a loud noise almost like metal on metal while trying to start


remove starter, mark your flywheel, turn one complete revolution with bolt in the crank
inspect every tooth on fly wheel, call your local
chevy dealer and give them the vehicle identification
number from your truck and ask for the manufacturers original part number call the parts house you got your starter from and have them cross reference your starters part number with the manufacturers to insure it is the correct model then shim your starter shims are available from your local parts house start with one shim if it grinds metal to metal add another if it whines like a low tone whistle
remove a shim repeat this process until you have the correct tone or sound when you start your truck
i hope this helps

There may also be a loose bolt head scraping on your flex plate if you have an automatic transmission.
