2003 Chevrolet Cavalier Question: When I start the car it makes horrible grinding noise.

So last night when I started cranking the car it makes a God awful grinding noise and it wouldn't start. This morning the grinding was still there but it started. My belief is that it's the starter. Aside from it being the starter and/or the flywheel is there anyhing else it could be?

    I would say that you are right when diag the starter you probably need a new starter drive and possibly a flywheel ,take the starter out and check the teeth on the starter drive and check the flywheel as well
