WTF THE FORD DEALERSHIP.

I just got a brand new starter and Water pump put in about 2 months ago. Right when i got the truck home i cranked it and i heard this really loud GRINDING BUZZING noise as if the starter wasnt engaging with the motor. So i finally got it in to the dealership and they said i need a new flywheel and its going to be 980 dollars :t ard::tar d:

wtf this NOISE NEVER EVER happend untill i got my truck back from the dealership.

WHAT DO I DO?!!!!!!!

Have you ever pulled a tranny before? It isn't too hard to do with a couple buddies. For the price you would pay someone to do that you could buy a good tranny jack and some tools.

Hell while it is out you could throw in a better torque converter??

You could also pull that inspection cover off under the truck and look at the flywheel and check it for sure.

ok sounds good. but my main question is.......... this NEVER happened before i gave my truck to them. The night i drove it home from the dealership, is the first time it happened. Is there anything that they could have done by putting the new starter in , or putting the new start in wrong. that would have caused this to happen?

Maybe the tech forgot to tighten the starter, and tried to start it . Possibly the wrong starter (didn't engage far enough)

Could be. Test thm further, talk to the service manager. If that doesn't work, maybe the local news would like to chew on a story like this, "Man gets more than he bargained for"

Yeah I can't imagine that this is very common. I hear about flexplates breaking due to tons of horsepower, but not from the starter... ??

99% of the starters out there have core charges. Some of the water pumps also have core charges.
