sometines when i go to start my car all i get is a grinding noise. usually after like 3 or 4 times it will start. today it did it for like 6 times. i tried beating on the starter incase it was jamed or something, but that didnt work. so i took a wrench and turned over the motor and then tried the starter and it fired right up. how involved is pulling the tranny to change the flywheel. how would you fix it. this is kinda of stupid but do you think i could weld the damaged teeth of the flywheel and file them back into shape all through the starter hole?
I would remove your starter, see if the gear is warn if so it needs replacing. Then turn the motor manually small amounts at a time and feel the timing gear for broken/warn teeth. If you feel broken teeth you will no the saddness of a bad flywheel. If not get a new starter it maybe weak.
well it is confirmed. I took off the starter today and there are like 8 to 10 teeth broken off of the flywheel. what is the best way to fix this? should I pull the tranny or try to slide the motor foreward? well one good thing is that my rear main seal is leaking so i can fix that. is there any problems I will run into while pulling the tranny? are ther any tips?
its not to bad, its nothing really hard, its more just lil things that take time. bell housing bolts are a pain to get to, espicalyl if you've never done it, figuring out the best ways are tricky teh first coupel time. You might be able to just pop the axles from teh hubs, since you just sliding it back a few inches you might not have to take them totally off. if you have the 3.5 it helps to take the upper intake off, there are soem botls/hoses up there to get around. But overall, its not terrible, just kinda time consuming, and lil thigns, nothing to big or major that you'd need to eralyl worry bout.

well i started today. i am going to drop the trenny and change the rear main seal and the and probably the front fump seal on the tranny. Got the exhaust off, the cv shafts off, the tranny mount and cross member out, the starter, and the inspection cover. the drivers side cv shaft was a p.i.t.a. it took about two hours to get it off the tranny.
alright i got the harness undone and all but two of the bolts out. does the shifter cable just snap off of the shifter arm of is thata a clip? so far the worst bolts were the top two just got the easy bottom ones left.
