RE: [DML] Starting Question

Stephen, It wouldn't hurt to say that Special T sent you another new
solenoid to replace the defective one. 
Sound like there is a miss alignment of the starter drive gear to the ring
gear on the flywheel when the starter is engaged. The only other thing I
can't think of would be a voltage dropout when trying to start. I would like
to talk to the mechanic.

Subject: [DML] Starting Question

This has been an ongoing problem since i bought my DMC in April.Every 
once in a while when i go to start my car the engine makes this awful 
grinding noise, then in have to turn the key all the way back to the 
insert position and try again. To start it. Now mind you it only 
happens every onece in a while.Its not like the engine is trying to 
start either its just a really loud obnoxious grinding sound. Kind of 
embarrassing when there are people with me. Ok update as of, Dec 2. I 
replaced my flywheel (flexplate for my car auto tranny) which was bad 
(chipped teeth etc.), got a new starter from hervey (which ended up 
having a bad solenoid), got the new solenoid today and had my mechanic 
put the new starter on and the car still makes that grinding sound 
when trying to start from time to time. THe car has been at my 
mechanics for a month now and is costing me. Hes getting stumped, and 
hes worked on Deloreans before.Any suggestions on what to check is 
highly appreciated. Thanks again
