It does not happen every time, but probably half the time. And mostly only when cold in the morning. As soon as it starts, and I let off the key, the starter grinds for just a second. I think it is not pulling back fast enough, or it is sticky. It has been doing it for a few months, but seems to be a bit more regular now. Is there any easy solution for this? I have not looked to see how hard a starter would be to put on my ecotec auto. I hope it is not messing too much stuff.

Thanks, Robert

well i changed a starter on my 3.4L and that was easy. and it wasent that exspensive. and too look and see if its doing any damage just look at the flywheel to see if its scared up or tore up at all.
