Need more info...if you can turn easily ,sounds like you have no compression in engine..pull a plug and test for compression ..you may have washed down cylinder walls with too much fuel and lost compression....if so, you pull all plugs and squirt several sprays of motor oil into each cylinder and turn over to re-build compression........also if you jumped your timing chain, the valves would be open when they should be closed causing no compression, I would need more info on what its doing

There is no way the ring gear will hit the starter pinion unless the fly wheel bolts on the crank shaft or loose allowing the flywheel to run out of true. If you have had clutch/ rear seal work done lately the fly wheel will only fit in one position and if that was ignored at some time then the fly wheel will run out and touch the starter pinion.. I would also check the adjustment on the starter pinion as it has to be set by the lever pivot to a correct distance or it will touch the teeth of the ring gear
battery terminal connections looseor corroded.Check the cable terminals at the battery.Tighten the cable and remove corrosion as necessary.Battery discharged or faulty.If the cable connections are clean and tight on the battery posts turn the key to the on position and switch on headlights and or windscreen wipers if they fail to function the battery is discharged.Automatic transmission not properly engaged in park or neutral or clutch pedal not completely depressed.Broken loose or disconnected wiring in the starting circuit, inspect all wiring in the starter solenoid and ignition switch.Starter motor pinion jammed in fly wheel ring gear, if manual place ransmission in gear and rock the vehicle to manually turn the engine.Remove the starter and inspect the pinion and fly wheel at earliest convenience.
are you sure you got a good solenoid?souds like it's not kicking the starter bendix out for the start.if it hums that means it's turning right? it has to be the solenoid not kicking the starter bendix into the flywheel to start the engine.i would try another solenoid. thank you for choosing fixya.com
where the transmission and the motor meets there is a cover remove cover ,your able to see the fly wheel now with a closed wrench stick up on there and loosen bolt you can turn the fly wheel with a large screw driver or you can hit the ignition key little at a time till you can reach other bolts good luck
I'd guess that your intending to replace the timimg belt and the engine is turning whenever you try to loosen the pulley bolt.
Your best and easiest way of going about the job is to remove the starter motor.
Disconnect the battery.
Remove the cables from the starter motor (The thin one for the solenoid and the thick cable for the HT power.
Remove the starter motor retaining bolts.
Remove the starter motor.
From here we can take two directions
a) Get a friend to help you, who should lock the fly wheel with a large flat screw driver by locking the rotation by placing the screw driver in the ring gear, while you loosen that bolt up front.
b) Get a toothed clamp made up that will fit into the ring gear and lock the fly wheel when fitted using one of the starter motor retaining bolts. This requires a job handed over to a machine shop. (a bit expensive for a single job)
When fitting the pulley bolt remember it should be tightened to a torque of 98nm
You have to watch out that the screw driver doen't slip while loosening or tightening
Have a good weekend
