Bought the Jimmy starter when out bought a new.

  • 1995 GMC JIMMY

Bought the jimmy starter when out bought a new starter two weeks later the teeth broke off on the starter, replaced that and about every two weeks I have to replace the starter. Now when I put a new starter in a week goes by then it just grinds everytime I turn the key over I don't know what to do?

Check to see if t he teeth on flywheel are still there. Then the next time you pu tthe starter in after you replace th flywheel make sure to shim it right. If it still turns over then go to auto parts store and get a shim for it and see if thyhave instructions on how to shim it correctly
