    Angry starter and/or flywheel stripped

    My starter has been making an odd clicking noise when cranking for about a year now, but had been looked at and I was told it wasn't harming anything and needed to be rebuilt. Well...never got around to that. Today, when taking off from a stop light I hear a loud rattling noise. When I get home I jack the car up expecting to find a shield or something loose, found nothing. Went to crank it up again, and just a loud whine as the starter turned and the motor did not. I will be pulling the starter tomorrow or monday--never done that and don't know how to/what to look for on the flywheel exactly--obviously ground teeth. Any advice before I get started is much appreciated!!! Thanks everybody!

    I would say 70% of the time in my experience over the years it has been the flywheel. You can probably get down there and turn the flywheel a little bit to where there is still some teeth and it will start right up.
    But the starter is only two bolts to drop and look.
    GOOD LUCK
