1995 C 1500 v6 starter troubles
I know, this isn't performance or Impala, but I am at a loss. 1995 Chevrolet Silverado C-1500. V-6 auto. 160,000miles. I have replaced starter three times now, always the same results. Works great at first, then pretty soon the starter does not engage the flywheel. Most times it takes more than three or four tries to get it to work. No grinding or any other noises other than wrrrree. I tried to shim it but no difference. The starters are from Orielly auto and I was smart enough to but the lifetime warranty, but it is still crappy, living in North Dakota! Any ideas? What am I missing? PS the flywheel is stock, the drivetrain has never been disturbed. The flywheel looks fine, at least what I can see of it and the starter gear looks fine too...WTH?
