Question about Acura TL
The solenoid in the started may not be projecting the plunger far enough to reach the ring gear. This would make a spinning sound, but not a grinding sound. If it's grinding, the started gear is worn out.
If you can remove your starter, it can easily be bench tested at an auto parts store and the plunger can be watched. If it dosen't shoot out of the solenoid far enough or not at all, the solenoid is bad. The starter will need to be replaced unless you can find a solenid seperetly, which is unlikely in newer cars.
