My 94 Camry starter slips and grinds. How do I fix that?

Asked by Jul 27, 2019 at 01:00 AM about the 1994 Toyota Camry

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2 Answers

Do I need to change the flywheel or possibly use shims?


If the starter slips, the Bendix drive teeth aren't meshing properly, and if it slips, they're really out of line. I'd suspect that something in the starter is broken or has come loose: either the drive or the mount. If this continues, it could chew the teeth off your flex-plate.
