| | Help! Starter Grinding on 02 Z28
Went out to start my car and it wont start. Don't think it is an electrical issue, it sounds like the starter is grinding. Put it up on jack stands and the starter does not feel loose at all. That starter is only a year or 2 old so the starter itself should not be the problem. Battery is fine as well.
Update: Think it might be bad starter after all, think it is that small gear that retracts after the car is started that has gone bad.
The problem is that is the 2 or 3rd starter in as many years. Is there any part that could be bad that is making all these starters go bad so quickly?
Autozone tested the starter and it in fact good, so they sold me shims to install when I put it back so that way the gear will hit the flywheel. 5 bucks
