Question about 1996 Chevrolet Cavalier
I've changed my starter on my 96 cavalier and it sounds like im still having the same problem... When i start my car i turn the egnition it starts with a loud scraping noise almost like its not disengaging.... When i dont turn the key all the way its tries to start with the loud scraping noise..... It's so embarassing... What can i do to fix it

Remove the starter nad inspect the teeth on the ring gear i suspect that the ring gear is worn and will need to be replaced

You may of messed up your flywheel like Scargo said. But before you do all that, there are shims you can get for the starter. The starter gears maybe too close to the flywheel for proper alignment. Using shims will space the starter out farther and let the gears work together. Before you take it to the shop to get the ring gear replaced, I'ld try this soultion first. Basically, it's a trial and error type sisuation.

There may also be a loose bolt head scraping on your flex plate if you have an automatic transmission.

If, in changing the starter, it had a chewed up gear, then the ring gear on the flywheel is probably now worn out.
This is going to require pulling the engine to fix.
