my camaro will start 20 times in a row, no drag or hasitation at all. then i will hit the key and i get the dreaded grind of death. :mad: sometimes 2 or three times in a row before it catches. (very embarrassing) i dont think it is a shim problem, it sounds perfect when it starts right. i dont want to tear up my flexplate.

do you think i need to replace the starter or should i just change the bendix?

all we have locally is NAPA or advance auto. neither one makes a good starter.

It sounds like the starter is on its way out. I would replace the starter before it chunks up the (fly wheel gear)...

Usually shims are the answer. The bendix is connected to the solenoid so the starter motor won't engage unless the bendix is fully deployed.
