Exclamation Jeep Starter Motor

Starter motor is making a noise when engaged, once the jeep starts the noise goes away.

Not sure if it's the starter motor or starter solinod. How do I tell and do they come separate or when buying a new one?

Jeep Starter Motor

The best thing to do is to look up a starter re-builder in the yellow pages and see if they can test the starter amp. draw while on the jeep. If drawing too many amps. the starter needs to be replaced or rebuilt. Rebuilding the starter at a local shop can be a savings of 60%. I have always had my starters rebuilt without any problems. The noise could be the bendix. Hopefully the ring gear is OK.
