Check that the pinion teeth count is the same as the one you took out as some starter motors come with different pinion teeth count as they are used on different motors that have smaller or larger ring gears. The noise may be the incorrect meshing of the pinion teeth in the ring gear.

Only thought is, when you tighten the bolts ,go a little on
one ,then the other, like 3 times, don't tighten one all the way
first. Makes the housing warp.

2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4.0 wont go over 25 mph. There are no fault codes.


First eliminate the fuel flow, replace the fuel filter. It starts and runs, pump is OK. Then I would go back to the exhaust. Remove an O2 sensor before the catalytic converter. One is fine. It will be louder. If it runs better at picks up speed, then the cats are clogging up.

needs shimmed or the bendix is bad in the starter and not allowing to release. most likely just needs shimmed if it's a new starter, however you can get a bad starter (new or rebuilt)

2004 jeep grand cherokee laredo after driving through snow drift vibrates and is loud


I do it all the time. the reason that happens is snow packs in the rims and tires and causes the tires to be out of balance so at speed they will vibrate and make a louder road noise. solution bring it to the car wash and spray those tires down.

Why does my dodge grand garavan make loud noise


could be a problem with your flywheel or if the starter was just replaced and you started hearing the noise then it could have to be shimmed out from the flywheel. Could be a starter issue.
