Customer Question

Replaced starter on Hyundai Elantra 2003. Sounds like starter gear not fully engaging with fly wheel. It worked fine for 2 or 3 days, then quit. Any ideas?

Hello I will help,

Why was the old one replaced? Did it run without engaging the ring gear?

You say this one worked for a few days and then quit, how did it quit? Does it run when you turn the key to start?
