I have a starter that hangs up to the starter ring! I think it might be that the oil pan might be twisted, or bent. Any sugestions we have to rock the car to get free.
That is a possibility, or your starter shaft might be bent.
I would start by pulling the Bendix cover off and getting a good visual on it as you slide the gear manually toward the flywheel. Maybe you have a bent starter shaft?
I'll check the shaft out, thanks again guys!!
Are you sure itís hanging up? I hope it is just the starterís shaft bent a little. If the sound it makes is more like w whirling sound it could be the some teeth are bad on the ring gear and thatís not a simple fix. That would require you to pull the engine. Hereís hoping itís just a bent shaft.
.....or is the starter ring installed reversed ??
