Sometime the automatic and the standard transmission starter are diffrent you might have got the wrong one or it was misboxed if you can look at the old one check the bolt holes also check the deck good luck

99 tahoe wont crank wont start with new battery


Does starter click? Try turning on headlamps and get someone to watch as you try to start car. If headlamps dim, likely bad starter or battery cable(s). If they don't dim, bad solenoid, starter switch, neutral safety switch. Try starting in neutral and jiggle shifter while trying. If it starts, replace neutral safety switch.

2004 Kia Optima, 2.7 LX, its grinding when the key is turned? Any solutions?? I think it's the starter. It will not do anything but grind.


the starter pinion is grinding on the flywheel,
classic on all cars.
1: low battery voltage caused by 10 things. use a voltmeter 10-v minimum cranking, if not post actual voltage
2: starter pinion shaft seizing.
3: starter solenoid seiziing.
4: engine seized, turn over by hand at front of pulley ,is it ok?
6: damaged flywheel ring gear,
7: starter bolts loose causing it to jam due to tilt.
8: starter bad, shorted, or weak,

engine seized has many paths, even hydralocked, so i check that first. to avoid, total destruction of same.
i turn it over by hand with my big wrench. key off. in park or neutral if M/T

Flywheel or something grings against the starter when clutch is engaged


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

2001 GMC jimmy won't start. New starter, new


If the starter motor is turning the problem may be a broken flywheel tooth. If starter is not engaging the solenoid may be bad or not hooked up but that seems unlikely since starter was replaced. The problem's down there. If solenoid not clicking then problem may be further back.

90 blazer, starter problems, grinding at flywheel, tried, new bolts, shims, and new starter, how often do you have to use 1/2 shims?


inspect fly wheel good could have bad ring gear. check torque convertor bolts they are tigth. with starter bolted up NO SHIMS push out pinion gear and check clearance at flywheel teeth . you can use a feeler gauge (ROUND DIAMETER) measure clearance between top of flywheel ring gear tooth & bottom tooth of pinion tooth on starter clearance should be 0.01-0.06inchs. can ge shim in different gauges. DONT USE MORE THAN 2 SHIMS. some times you have to shim them but not often most of the time if use shims have a flywheel issue.
