940 Starter Run-on
My 1994 940 has begun to make an odd noise when starting. The starter will
engage, and the engine start, then a sound like a loosly spinning gear
slowing down is made. It is quite loud, and can be heard inside and outside
of the car. Obviously something is not right.
Based on this sketchy (!) information, has anyone experienced something like
this with their 940/740? And, if so, what was the cause and correction?
My impression is that the starter is becoming "hung" and still spins after
starting the engine, or the return spring/system on the starter is not
retracting the gears properly. In either case it seems that the starter
needs to be replaced.
Before I break out the socket wrenches, does anyone have any experience
with something like this?
