I am on my third starter in so many weeks now. The starter keeps breaking. The housing breaks and the part that goes into the fly wheel keeps breaking and I have to take the flywheel cover off to dig out the broken parts. I was told by the auto parts store guy that the starter I have in the truck is actually for a 1996 Chevrolet but my truck is a 1997. It sure seems to have a lot of room. The starter for a 1997 is a lot bigger. Should I have a 1997 starter instead? Is there some kind of spacer or shim I need for the starter since it is a 1996? And why do I have a 1996 starter in a 1997 Chevrolet anyway?
have the same problem?
