Title: starter going out?
Post by: 08chevyguy on August 17, 2016, 06:37:57 PM
So i turn the key, it barely cranks then makes a kind of grinding noise...turn key back and retry, cranks a littke more and does the same thing. 3 or 4 times of that and the. It turns over fine and starts... i pulled the starter today and looked at the teeth on it and the fly wheel. They looked perfectly fine on both. None were bent or shaved down or anything... tested the started and it seemed to jump out far enough and sounded just fine. Do yall think that maybe it is just getting tired? And where is a good place to get one? Thanks for any advice and help.

Well if you think everything's okay, the first thing that comes to my mind is your battery voltage under load.
