How is everyone just need some advice on my starter. I have replaced my starter twice in two weeks. First one was a cheap 39.99 starter I bought. It didnt even want to fit in the bell housing so I took it back. Come to find out it was made China. The second one I bought the OEM replacement for 49.99 it has a motorcraft casing it fit good. When I turn the key it will crank just fine but there is this little grinding sound almost every time I can let go of the key quick and it want do it. I just dont know. It did take care of my car not starting when it gets hot I replaced the starter cable and starter. thanks Harold
try replacing the solenoid. Do you have a V8 with headers? Maybe too much heat on the starter.As far as the grinding noise? worn flywheel
from past bad starter bendix problems? If you replaced the cables and have a rebuilt starter your problem is more than likely an incorrect match of bell housing and engine possibly. Good luck
