Wrong Starter installed in my truck, What are the consequences if a mechanic installed a wrong starter ?? I paid the other mechanic to fix the problem and he said I need to check my flywheel to make make sure it is not damaged due to the wrong part was installed in my tractor. What could happen if you installed a wrong starter ??

  • Welcome to Motor Vehicle Maintenance & Repair! Sounds like the "other mechanic" already stated what could happen. If the wrong starter was put in, it could cause wear to the ring gear (on the flywheel, I'll assume since you didn't state what the vehicle in question is). Is this a semi-tractor? – Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 Apr 23 '19 at 13:22
