You may try to have it resurfaced at an automotive machine shop, and if it's too bad to resurface you can replace it.

    If you are referring to the surface of the flywheel that the clutch makes contact with as being chewed up (as when the clutch lining rivits score up the flywheel), then the flywheel will need to be removed and taken to an automotive machine shop to determine whether it can be machined down to a smooth surface again or it may be too worn and need to be replaced with a new flywheel. But, if you are referring to the ring (the toothed part that the starter engages to start the vehicle? Then you can purchase just the toothed ring and have it pressed on your flywheel.
    That's my best explanation without more feedback from you.

When starting my 90 camaro it makes a loud

I have a 89 jeep wrangler 4.2 with peugeot transmission ...I just bought jeep it started but makes a grinding sound like the starter bad then all sudden it won't crank...so I got new starter replaced...


recheck the parts to be the correct ones because what you are describing is a gear mesh problem. ensure the gear on the starter matches those gear teeth on the flywheel. once you know they are matching and are correct for that year and size of engine, you will need a variety of shims to set the distance between the two correctly. (which you already have experience at). But it is important you have the correct starter because the solenoid and the throw-out spring are specific made to travel a set distance. If that distance is not far/long enough the gear will not full engage the width/thickness of the flywheel tooth/teeth (which causes the starter gear to strip those teeth of the back side of flywheel). SO you need to do some serious looking at those parts and the meshing when solenoid is engaging.

Starter spins but wont engage, could it be a fuse


HUH??? The electrical circuit is working and you think there is a blown fuse?
NO! there is a MECHANICAL problem with your starter like a broken bendix or a chewed-up flywheel. You need to remove your starter motor and inspect the teeth on your flywheel. Look through the starter hole and turn the engine by hand so you can inspect the teeth all the way around. I usually mark the flywheel with a marking pen before I start turning it so I can tell when I have gone all the way around. If the teeth are all in decent condition, replace the starter. If you find any broken/damaged teeth, you need to pull your transmission and replace the flywheel. (AND probably replace the starter anyway.)

90 blazer, starter problems, grinding at flywheel, tried, new bolts, shims, and new starter, how often do you have to use 1/2 shims?


inspect fly wheel good could have bad ring gear. check torque convertor bolts they are tigth. with starter bolted up NO SHIMS push out pinion gear and check clearance at flywheel teeth . you can use a feeler gauge (ROUND DIAMETER) measure clearance between top of flywheel ring gear tooth & bottom tooth of pinion tooth on starter clearance should be 0.01-0.06inchs. can ge shim in different gauges. DONT USE MORE THAN 2 SHIMS. some times you have to shim them but not often most of the time if use shims have a flywheel issue.

Just changed the starter on my 98 ford taurus and it still makes a coughing sound everytime I try to start it.Is the flywheel bad and how do I change the flywheel?


Does sound like the flywheel. Easiest way is to take the engine out and remove the transmission with the engine out, you can remove the transmission with the engine but its a lot easier with it out. Go look for a use flywheel with a good starter ring on it (no chewed teeth). This job sounds a lot worse than it is, you will need a workshop manual a set of wrenchs and sockets plus a cherry picker. Good luck.

Just replaced the clutch because the car wasnt going in to gear without force and grinding. replace the clutch and still the same problem. even pulle the arm manually witha bar to release it and still no...


that center piece is the pilot bearing, the input shaft should ride free , if it is indeed chewed up the shaft is probably binding in the flywheel

I had a starter motor fitted to my for mondeo TDCI 2002 because the engine just screeched and didn't turn over when trying to start. everything was fine until 2 months latter when the same problem started...


Probably want to pull starter out and check the gear on starter and if its chewed up then youll want to check the flywheel also. Good chance if the starter keeps getting chewed up then the flywheel is bad

Starter problem 1988 Jeep Wrangler


I sit here on this site and help people with their issues all the time, and I do it for free. I've been in the mechanics trade for over 24 years, and I think I have a good idea of what I'm talking about. I don't know it all, and I even need assistance from time to time. The only thing I ask in return for my help, is a good rating from the people I help. Once you replace your solenoid, your issue will be resolved. Yes the fix is that simple. Remember to disconnect the negative cable from the battery before you replace it, so you don't ground anything out.

Car has a hard time starting


The teeth on your flywheel or the teeth on your starter are chewed up. Since the teeth are chewed up but stiil present, they put a heavy load on the starter which in turn will draw a lot of power from the battery. If you have the ways and means take the starter out and inspect the teeth that attach to the flywheel. If they are stripped/worn/chewed up replace the starter if that doesn't work, take a flashlight and take a look in the little hole where the starter gear goes and take a look at your flywheel. If the teeth are real shiny take a look at your flywheel. Sometimes the starter will strip the teeth off of the flywheel, sometimes vise versa.
