Some do and some don't. It depends on the fit between the starter and the block. If you take your starter off and there is some there, put them back in. If there is none don't put any in. You'll have to try it and see if they have to come out or stay. Hope this helps.

99 saturn will not crank after installing a new starter

you may need a shim between your starter and the block. Most starters are ok, but some need shims so that the teeth on starter line up with teeth on flywheel. Starter is probably jammed

My starter is turning but not cranking what should I do?

I am guessing that your starter is turning the eng over. If so, turn the key to the ACC position and listen for your fuel pump to turn on momentarily. If it doesn't, new fuel pump.
If it isn't turning over, replace the starter and make sure if you put it in it is shimmed correctly. This is done for a correct fit to your fly wheel.

Dose starter need shims

It all depends. Normally when you buy a replacement starter there is a piece of straight wire that comes with it that helps you to "gap" the tranny's fly wheel teeth to the starter's they mesh properly.

Are you asking because you have flywheel damage on the transmission side or are you having starter problems?

WHEN I CRANK MY BLAZER I HEAR A GRINDING NOISE WHEN I TURN THE KEY TO CRANK IT....SOMEONE said something about the shins ( starter),,,someone said water pump....someone said radiator

I don't see how the noise you hear could be coming from the water pump or radiator but yes it could be coming from not having the starter shimmed out far enough from the ring gear. Did you change the starter or do anything prior to hearing this noise?

Brakes to the floor(almost) 99 blazer

bleed the brake again. if the pedal goes to the floor with little resistance, then the master cylinder is your problem.
the shim is to depress the noise when you applied the brake. you can skip that, if the brake works without it.
