Hello and good day:

Can you please give us some more additional information?

Year/Make/Model/Engine size

Also where the Grinding sound seems to be coming from? You may have a Bad Starter

Good Luck and good repairing Sterling_6

As "Sterling Six " states , need to supply more info . If noise is when you turn engine over , could be as suggested , dud starter motor .If not that and not turning over fast enough , could be low battery .( tried jump start ? )

More than likely it needs a starter. The ring gear can also have a bad spot on ti and you can turn the motor by hand a little to see if it cranks then. If it does, when you replace the starter, look at the flywheel teeth. Wouldn't hurt to do it when the starter is out anyway.
