Asked by Jul 11, 2015 at 10:31 PM about the 1999 Chevrolet C/K 1500 LS 2WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

It supposedly got a new starter put on at repair shop, but when starting van it makes a terrible grinding sound, but starts up and runs fine. What could be causing this? I am taking it back to the repair shop but just need a heads up on potential problem, don't want to be blind sided by an answer like: It is not the starter but you need this or that and that is what is causing the starter to etc.......

They may not have put the correct shim in when they replaced the starter.

They can loosen them and add the sim, shims or 1/2 shims to achieve that drawing. takes awesome patience...Job was just a pussy.
