I have a 2000 Chevy Blazer automatic. When I turn the key over it starts grinding horribly as soon as it cranks over. Ive replaced the starter 4 times... What’s wrong with it?
My car has an automatic transmission.
If the starter motor does not release once the engine is running, the cause could be starter misalignment or failure of the circuit to open, and release the starter solenoid, the instant you release the ignition key. If the noise only occurs during starting though and the noise does NOT continue after release of the ignition key, the starter motor is either misaligned or there is damage to the flex plate ring gear.
