Mechanic's Assistant: When you turn the key, do you get a single loud click, or a series of rapid ones?

Ineither, it sonds like something grinding sort of. i shimmed starter away and its better but when i release key from start mode i do get a loud knock

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Grand Cherokee yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes, replaced starter w new one remove and reinstall several times then shim out in small incriments til now. it is sounding ok when starting but release key and get the knock, car sounds and runs perfect after the noise. does puttingg the later trans in hav anything to do w it
