1992 subaru legacy starter wont engage fully and makes a loud grinding noise


Sounds like it is not toughing 100% and making full gear contact with the fly-wheel. Replace starter or the misalignment can burr the flywheel causing rounding and subsequent damage to the device.

Grinds when the car has been stalled for a bit and then started. Sounds like a metal scraping noise. Also when decelerating or reaching a stop it whines and towards the end if broken abruptly it does


The grinding noise when you are braking is worn out pads. Metal against metal is not good for your discs - replace the pads otherwise your up for machining of the discs or replacing. That noise on start-up is common with worn teeth on the fly wheel. The fly wheel will stop in "common" positions just how the momentum of the motor works and the teeth can wear out at these spots - sounds horrid but is not "unsafe" problem is one day you may not be able to start the car if the starter cannot engage the fly wheel to turn the motor over. This is where you hear of people turning the motor over a little by hand (they usually remove the stone plate from below the fly wheel to hand crank the engine) I don't recommend this practice probably better to price a replacement and while it is apart consider any other work eg. Clutch or minor seal leaks as it is not a small job to replace the flywheel.

I have a 2004 vw passat ihave put a new clutch and fly wheel on and after i run car for a bit and you go to start it. it made alot of noise in bell houseing.


If it only makes noise when you start it, and the clutch seems to be working fine...then it would have to be the starter is not aligned correctly, or the teeth on it are damaged. Take the starter out of the bell housing, and give the teeth a good inspection. If all looks OK, them it may have been in a bit crooked. Try and line it up so the teeth appear to meet at the right place with the fly wheel teeth. It may have moved after the first start if it wasn't torqued correctly or has stripped threads.
Good Luck!

97 Ford Power Stroke, starting problem.


Does the starter engage the drive gear with the action of a solenoid? It may not be pushing (pulling) the gear far enough. There may be a slipping ring gear on the flex-plate. If you pull the starter again, you can try to see if the ring moves in and out or appears to be slipping around on the flex-plate. The flex plate could be loose on the crankshaft. In any case, the engine or the transmission would have to come out. Check the starter engagement before removing the torus and flex-plate.

sounds like the starter is not disengaging the fly wheel quickly like it should when you turn the key the starter cog connects upto a fly wheel that has teeth all around it when the teeth of starter cog connect between teen on wheel it spins it to crank your car then goes back to starter if you hold your key on after starting the noise you hear is the starter cog(teeth ) still engaged in wheel if this is the sound it needs to be serviced not neccassarily replaced
