Starter Motor issue
I replaced the original starter motor on my Grand Cherokee 2.5 diesel with a non 'jeep' replacement but it always made a strange whirring sound when starting and the motor only lasted a few months, assuming a bad motor I replaced again with non jeep and the same happened. Has anyone had this problem or can anyone confirm that 'jeep' starter motor only is suitable and why?

The noise sounds like the starter is not disengaging quickly enough or something so maybe the OEM version is very slightly diferrent? I will try a cheap used OEM starter just to test the theory first without too much cost and will post here how I get on. Thanks.

I could be wrong but I think it was denso or mitsubushi. Don't quote me on that one.
