98 Suburban will not start

Asked by Jun 27, 2013 at 07:51 PM about the 1998 Chevrolet Suburban

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 98 Chevy Suburban and I had some starting issues at first. Replaced the starter
and everything seemed to be working fine until i used the automatic start and the car
made a screaming noise and then shut off. Replaced the starter again because the fly
wheel like chewed up the nose part of the starter. Nothing seems to fix it now.

Then you more than likely have some gears, teeth, whatever you want to call them broken off the flywheel too. That is bad. Transmission must come out..but first make sure by taking starter out again, look in to opening where starter goes, and get a helper to turn the engine manually, all the way around. maybe with a breaker bar on the Crank pulley. If there is one spot bad, it depends on where it was when the engine was turned off whether the bendix will catch on the flywheel. Even if it did it would have to start before one 360 and that is not going to happen

the solenoid is experiencing an under-amperage condition and not "stickin' it out there" reliably...would look to the date of your battery...replace it with a new one...clean the connection to the chassis~

a toothless man can still gnaw through a chunk of ham...probably 50% of the tooth remains, the rest into shavings and "dust"~ if after the battery- otomy still screams like a banshee...we will talk about finding you a new ring gear~

ebay's got your flywheel for eighty-five bucks~
