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

Putting shims between starter and motor


I assume you want instructions on how to put shims in or the process at least? well it's a complete guessing game. Try one, test, if not good enough move onto the next size. Keep going, and once it starts getting bad go back to the previous size and you're done.
