[DML] Re: Weird Noise?

Often if you replace the starter (or just the bendix) the new, fresh
gear will mesh better with the ring gear so even if some teeth on the
ring gear are worn it will work OK. The thing to do is to examine the
gear on the bendix and if it looks torn up rotate the flywheel and
check the ring gear all around. If it looks OK then usually doing just
the starter will get you going again. If, on inspection of the ring
gear, you see teeth missing or badly worn you should replace it. It
will eventually tear up the new gear on the starter if you don't. Of
course this is assuming this is the problem in the first place!. It
could be just a bad bendix that is slipping. Hard to tell from your
description of the noise.
