starter gears stripped??? Ok, for awhile now, I have had problems with my starter. every once in awhile, it wont engage the flywheel. but if i shift through the gears, it usually finally locks up and starts the truck fine. When the gears fianlly enguage, it works smooth anf flawlessly, but now, it wont enguage the flywheel at all. i have not pulled the starter to see for my self, but i wanted to know if any body else has had this problem. I jsut hope the fly wheel gear is still intact, because i dont want to pull the engine. Any ideas guys.
