I just drove from Monterey Ca to Huntsville Al. Around Memphis TN my starter started making a grinding sound that got worse and worse as the trip progressed.
As a quick preemptive measure I ordered an MSD starter for a 2003 Corvette because it was supposed to have heat shielding for use with long tube headers like I have. I thought this was the best action to undertake since I was traveling.
I was going to put it on myself (not a hard job, I've done it before on my 84 vette) but just didnt have time. I brought it to this repair shop 3 days ago on post for the aforementioned reasons.
When I got the new alternator I checked to make sure it was a 110 amp and not a 140 amp. It shouldn't matter since the problem was still there with the original part on the car. The new alternator didnt fix or contribute to the charge system fault message or the 2 codes.
I'm just trying to figure out what the kid did wrong. His service manager said he used to work at GM...I think now that he must have s fired or something.....
He thinks now that the PCM might be fried but I have 0 confidence in him

Additionally, I'm confused. Why was the starter changed to begin with?
