1996 C1500 loud noise trying to start

Asked by Sep 20, 2014 at 08:57 AM about the 1996 Chevrolet C/K 1500 Silverado Standard Cab Stepside SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

A month ago my c1500 would drag but finnaly turn over, the other day I went to start and
it made a loud grinding metal noise and wouldnt start. Autozone tested starter and said it
was bad. Bought a new one and cranked ok but made a winding noise. next day tried to
crank and made loud metal noise. It broke the cone off the starter. I replaced starter, but
makes a loud metal sheering noise. If it turns over the engine sounds fine. The flywheel
teeth look good. I replaced the Cam position sensor too. any ideas, I love my truck. I
thought i might need to shim the starter, but its making the same noise that it was
making with the original starter. Thought maybe flywheel, but it would make a noise while
running, but it sounds great if you can get it to turn over.
