I think my 550 has a sticking starter solenoid:

Does it sound like it is over-revving at the end?

About once or twice a month I will also hear grinding like someone trying to start an already-started car.

If I do replace the solenoid (which apparently takes like 9 hours of shop time) should I also replace the starter as well? Is it hurting anything to ignore this?
