Starter motor grinding

This sounds like you will need to remove the starter to be sure...this grinding is usually caused by the spring loaded armature not releasing to retract into the starter after starting...this grinding means the starter is not disengaging from the flywheel...sometimes installing shims to shorten the engagement length works, but on your late model Toyota, this would be unusual...probably will need to replace the starter. Continued driving could cause serious damage to the flywheel, a costly repair...don't wait to repair or replace...the engine and transmission need to be seperated to replace a damaged flywheel. Try the starter first. Hope this helps. You share a famous name with "Harry Morgan" of the MASH TV series:)

Starter makes a screeching noise sometimes just after the motor starts

Replace the starter before it ruins the flywheel. You have a worn out drive that applies to the flywheel. Flywheels are very very hard to change, in fact you can change 10 or 15 starters in the same time changing one flywheel

I have a 1996 astro van...when i go to start and turn ignition it makes this real bad grinding sound? could it be the flywheel or the starter ?

It could be either the flywheel or the starter.
If it's grinding, don't try it again until you've removed and examined the starter and flywheel. If the starter solenoid isn't fully engaging the bendix, it will cause the gear to grind; replace or rebuild the starter if that's the case.
But you should examine the flywheel to see if it is seriously damaged from the problems you've had. Put a mark on the flywheel using a magic marker, then examine the flywheel as you slowly turn the engine by hand. (make certain that the ignition is off when you do that, you don't want anything bad to happen to your hand.) The mark on the flywheel will indicate when you've been able to examine the all of the teeth on the starter ring.

I believe my starter motor needs to be replaced.How can I remove it.The flywheel prevents me from pulling it out. If I remove the motor from the chassis can I take the motor to Craftsman repair center for...

On your twin cylinder briggs engine, it is necessary to remove the flywheel first before removing the starter assembly. !st, remove the sheet metal covering the top of the engine. Then remove the screen covering the top of the flywheel. The larg nut that is holding on the flywheel is on very tight. You will probably need an impact tool to remove this nut and to reinstall it. Next, pry up on the flywheel on 2 sides to remove it. Be careful, it is very heavy. Now you can remove/replace the starter.
Good luck!

Starter noise during cranking and after the engine fires is often a result of too much or tool little distance between the starter pinion gear and the flywheel. A high pitched whine during cranking (before the engine fires) can be caused by the pinion and flywheel being too far apart. Likewise, a whine after the engine starts (as the key is released) is often a result of the pinion-flywheel relationship being too close. In both cases flywheel damage can occur. Shims are available in 0.015 in. sizes to properly adjust the starter on its mount. In order to check and adjust the shims, you will also need a flywheel turning tool, available at most auto parts stores or from any auto tool store or salesperson. If your car's starter emits the above noises, follow the shimming procedure below:
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Raise and support the vehicle safely using jackstands.
  3. Remove the torque converter cover on the bottom of the bell housing.
  4. Using the flywheel turning tool, turn the flywheel and examine the flywheel teeth. If damage is evident, the flywheel should be replaced.
  5. Insert a screwdriver into the small hole in the bottom of the starter, then move the starter pinion and clutch assembly so the pinion and flywheel teeth mesh. If necessary, rotate the flywheel so that a pinion tooth is directly in the center of the two flywheel teeth and on the centerline of the two gears, as shown in the accompanying illustration.
  6. Check the pinion-to-flywheel clearance by using a 0.020 in. wire gauge (a spark plug wire gauge may work here, or you can make your own). Make sure you center the pinion tooth between the flywheel teeth and the gauge — NOT in the corners, as you may get a false reading. If the clearance is under this minimum, shim the starter away from the flywheel by adding shim(s) one at a time to the starter mount. Check clearance after adding each shim.
  7. If the clearance is a good deal over 0.020 in. (in the vicinity of a 0.050 in. plug), shim the starter towards the flywheel. Broken or severely mangled flywheel teeth are also a good indicator that the clearance here is too great. Shimming the starter towards the flywheel is done by adding shims to the outboard starter mounting pad only. Check the clearance after each shim is added. A shim of 0.015 in. at this location will decrease the clearance about 0.010 in. Battery and Starter Specifications Chart

2001 Ford F350 SuperDuty, Starts intermitently. Will start but then won't start the next time just a click at the starter relay.

I have also suffered this problem. The starter motor has a component called BENDEX. It is the part that pushes the starting pinion forward and backward so that it engages with the flywheel when you want to start. And when you release the starter, it retracts the pinion and it disengages from the flywheel. As the flywheel is much larger than the pinion, if it does not disengage the starter motor will get burnt as it would be subjected to a very high RPM by the flywheel. So, get the bendex repaired. If it can not be repaired for some reason then replace with a new one.

Clanging noise when first started then quits sounds like something hitting flywheel

May be the Starter bendix not retracting. That would require starter repair or replacement. Repair before flywheel is damaged.

Cost to replace starter & flywheel on a 2003

for the starter and flywheel 1400 sounds right they would have to take the tranny out to get to the fly wheel but why do they need to replace the fly wheel did your old starter do a lot of grinding its not to often you have to replace a flywheel unless the starter wrecked it somehow again not to often starters are ment to break before it wrecks the flywheel the flywheel made of harder metel i would get a second opinion on replacing the flywheel

My starter

The flywheel doesn't usually grind into the flywheel it's usually the other way around. The starter upon trying to crank the engine over will make a grinding noise. This is the sign of a bad starter drive in the starter and it will need a new starter. The longer you wait on getting this repaired the more damage will be done to the flywheel and this is a very costly repair because the motor and transmission needs to be seperated apart from each other to pull the flywheel out and replaced.
Hope this helps keep, us posted.
