Let me start like this-
this summer I was coming to a stop and didn't engage the clutch in time and my truck died, wouldn't restart- fried the starter. Two weeks no prob, then hopped in one morning, no start-starter was fried again. I had it fixed under the local starter/alternator shops warranty.
All had been well until tonight. I run 1 mile to the local pizza place shut the truck off get my food start back up and come home, as I shut the truck of it sounds like a chop saw is runnin under the cab. I instantly knew the starter was spinning and was in a frenzy tryin to disconnect my cables before it chewed up the flywheel. It stopped before I could unhook them.
Definitely a metal smell with the smoke and NOT electrical. My hopes are it disnt eat the teeth off the flywheel!
Any ideas what could've caused it?
