Question about Chevrolet Silverado 1500

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

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.

I HAVE A 1993 TOYOTA TERCEL THE CAR STARTED MAKING A LOUD CLICKING SOUND WHEN I STARTED IT AND IT WOULD MAKE THE NOISE IN PARK AND NEUTRUAL WHEN PUT IN GEAR IT WOULD GET A BIT LOUDER ON ICSALERATION IT DID...


Sounds like the starter need to be replace or rebuilt.
The clicking is due to the starter still partially engaged. Grooves are worn on the contactors and the plunger is sticking in the starter.

Trouble starting and blinking dash


I had exactly the same problem this morning after returning from the store. I replaced the OEM battery with an Optima Red Top Model 25. Problem gone. Chrysler OEM batteries rarely last more than three years. You don't need to buy an Optima, but they do last a long time.

Good luck....

Sometimes car won't start


It sounds like your mechanic is right, to me it sounds like its just a dirty old starter having trouble making contact and turning... thats all. Once you replace it with a new starter that has a clean armature and new solenoid, it should start like clockwork!
