1998 Chevrolet Cavalier Question: Starter sometimes screeches when turning the key.
It seems very sensitive to how hard you push in the key. My wife almost never has a problem and I always have a problem. We've had the car since new and this has never been a problem until about 3 months ago. - bigmo93
Starter drive or some call bendix is in starter. Unless you have local starter rebuild shop usually makes more sense to just replace starter. When starter removed look carefully at teeth on starter drive- if you see worn or broken teeth- that's your problem. If not- inspect teeth on flywheel. - rpclements
