Just got my -95 Firebird from service. They changed cracked flexplate and bolts.New plate is transtar.Now when I start engine starter makes wierd grinding noise. Service men said theres nothing to do with that noise. With stock plate starter didn't make any noise. Is this shimmig problem or something else ?

Sounds like a shimming problem. The place that replaced your flexplate needs to fix it. If it didn't make a noise before, it shouldn't now.

Yep.It was shimming problem.Drove today back to service shop and they shim starter.No extra noise.Just dont understand why starter need shim.Flexplate was LT1 plate and starter is stock.Maybe theres something different on Transtar flexplate....
