When I started my truck there was this loud grinding noise, and it took longer for my truck to start. I put in a Yellow Top a couple weeks ago and this is the first time it has happened. What could be causing this? Maybe just the cold weather (about 20 degrees)?

Buy the starter and do it yourself. All that holds it in are 2 bolts and a wire. Takes about 20 minutes on most cars, unless you like paying a mechanic $300/hr.

go find one online or a junk yard might be able to find a still good starter do the work yourself not worth paying someone to do it .

Ok, you don't live where I live. didn't you originally say the entire job was going to be $160? Now you're saying $100 parts/$45 labor. Is that new math?

Anyway, if you have money to give away feel free, it's your business.
