2001 dodge ram 2500 4x4 automatic 5.9l, I keep burning out starters (3 in a year). Ill instal a new starter and it will work fin for a month or two. And then start with a nasty grinding noise every now and then. Becomes more frequent then the starter stops. I beleive last time I changed it they said the gears on the starter just didnt engage anymore. Thought it was the starter at first but 3 in just over a year? Is the answer shims? Or?
