1999 WJ makes loud screeching when starting
The starter on our WJ died a few years ago and I replaced it with a part from Advance Auto. Lately, it has been making a loud screeching noise right after it starts. It only lasts for a split second, like the starter is sticking.
The other day, it stalled while waiting at a traffic light. It wouldn't even turn over when I tried to get it going again. After a few minutes, I gave it one more shot and it started. Now I know conventional wisdom says the starter has nothing to do with keeping a car running, but could something have shorted and caused the car to stall? I really want to say this was caused by the starter.
