Question 2009 Impala LT 3.5L Starting problem


About a week ago the starter on my 2009 Impala died. I replaced it with one from Auto zone and ever since I've done that. The car acts strange when starting after it has been sitting for 8 hours or so. Any ideas on a solution would be appreciated.

Here is a video of the issue.

Sounded like your starter reengaged after the car was already started? Hard to say for sure what is going on there without more information, but maybe the starter is hanging.

My 6 year constantly asks why. What adults can learn from 5 and 6 year olds, to listen with your ears and mind open. Hard to learn when you don't listen ......

Sounds like the one-way clutch in the Bendix is hanging up and then eventually the centrifugal force of the starter motor is eventually forcing the one-way clutch to engage.
It's not long for this world. Take it back to the Borg and get another.
