so its been doin it sometimes lately.

When my truck sometimes starts when i go to start it i mean the starter makes a load noise and as soon as it starts and disengages it makes a nasty crunching noise almoost or grinding. If i replaced the starter wouldit fix it or is it maybe my flywheel? Or is there just a gear i can buy for the starter..


I guess the best thing to do would be to just take it out and look at the gear. But any ideas?

either its got a dead starter (could be the drive gear, which if you buy a rebuild kit, comes with a new one) or flywheel has teeth grinded out of it. Those are the most likely ideas.
