mine's toast... second time in the last 12 months. no clue what the hell happened the first time for a tooth to break off the flywheel and mess the starter up. the nissan tech's first diagnosis. had it repaired and all was well... then again just last week the sound i had the first go around came back. clacking sound as i fired it up. today, after work started it up and it sounded like metal schrapnel spinning around. then followed by a whining sound much like a coffee grinder on maximum speed. turn the key off and took it out and the whining continued on... had to disconnect the battery for it to stop. called triple a and had it towed to the nissan dealership. gahhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!
