My starter went zing!

I got in my '02 PSD 4x4 auto w/73k miles and when I went to start it...zing...tried again and it worked fine, this is the second time since I've owned it (about a month now)that this has happened. What are the chances of the starter gear being bad? The ring gear on the flywheel wouldn't be wore out already, can it? I have'nt tried to pull the starter to see yet. Just hoping for the best.

Thats the answer I was hoping for. Lucky for me my buddy works for a very well known alt. & starter shop here in FL. Thanks for the quick replies. Kelly

Hey if he can't fix it in a timely matter you can put a starter from a 2000 in it. It is bigger yes but it does work. You will have to go to the hardware store with one of your starter bolts and match it up to a grade 8 bolt that is the correct size and length and thread pitch. On the 2000 they are longer and have three bolt holes but your bellhousing has the third bolt hole on it just the 2002 starters are smaller and lighter and don't need this third bolt well at least mine was like that. Just a little info. By the way the only reason why I used a 2000 is because the part store had it in stock but they did not even carry a starter for a 2002.

Mine went zing and the drive gear actually left the starter. That was the first one. The second starter went zing and then stuck on, burning itself up. I was considering the larger starter. If the ne t one goes that maybe what I will do.
