NEW starter problem

Post by Cgthaxton » Sun Mar 31, 2019 8:55 pm

Ok, My starter in my 2012 failed and I ordered a brand new “Duralast Gold” starter from Autozone. I replaced the starter and crank sensor while I was in there. When I start the car you can hear the starter grind on the flywheel like an older vehicle needing the starter shimmed. Has anyone ran into this or have any insight? My thoughts are to pull it out and try replacing it again. Battery is good also.

These starters aren’t shimmed. Took that Duralast back and replaced with AC Delco. It’s just fine now.
