is the starter on when the car is on?


if it happenss once in a while, you might have a tooth missing on your flywheel, otherwise the bendex might not be kicking out all of the way. It is only 5 bolts to pull the starter out and get it checked.


its starts but very heavy grinding sound when cranking up. but not after its on
