You have teeth mission off the flywheel/flex plate and most likely a damaged starter gear as well. In order to replace the transmission flex plate (that is what it is called in this car) you must remove the transmission form the car

SOURCE: won't start, starter will spin but will not engage fly wheel to crank up engine

Sounds like the starter drive is shot, best thing to do is replace starter with new or rebuild.

I HAVE A 98 GMC YUKON THAT HAS A COLD START PROBLEM. fIRST START OF THE DAY AFTER THAT RUNS FINE. AND SUGGESTIONS?


sounds to me like your starter isn't shimmed correctly common problem for the 5.0l and 5.7l. your starter isn't meshing with your fly wheel correctly and causing unnecessary strain cause the problems you stated.

Teeth may not be missing on the flywheel, but they are supposed to be a certain thickness and the teeth may have worn too thin to mesh correctly.

Some cars also use shims to change the angle in which the starter contacts the flywheel. You may want to check with a local auto parts store to see if a new starter comes with shims.

Timing marks on peugeot 1.9 tdi


there is a few ways of doing thes the easiest way being using locking pins
you bont have to go and buy a set of locking pins you can use 3 m8 (13mm headded) bolts and a 5mm allen key

there is a hole in the cam pully and 2 holes in the injection pump pully and 1 in the fly wheel

i suggest you lock the fly wheel up first
the hole is located under the starter motor on the front of the block
insert the 5mm allen key and get someone to turn the crank pully clockwise until allen key engages into the fly wheel

the hole in the cam should be at about 25 past
(if it is at 10 to then you neet to remove the pin from the fly wheel and turn the crank 1 full turn)

when the hole is inthe right place you can insert a m8 bolt and wind it in to the head

with this now lined up you should be able to fit the other 2 m8 bolts into the injector pump pully

with this now done your 1.9 tdi engine is timed up

Timing belt replacement


hi mate
if you look on the front of the engine under the starter there is a small hole, (you can use a 5mm allan key in this hole to lock the crank) place allan key in the hole and hold it against the fly wheel while you turn the engine over in a clockwise direction by hand when the pin drops in you need to check that the hole in the cam shaft lines up with the hole in the head (should be about 4 o clock on the pully) and the 2 holes on the injection pump pully line up with the holes in the injection pump. (if these dont line up you will need to remove the allan key and turn the engine clockwise 90 degrees)
once all the the holes are lined up and the allak key is inserted into the flywheel, insert 3 m8 (13mm headed) bolts in to the hole on the cam pully and the 2 on injection pully. with all thes done your engine will be timed up and wont slip when refitting new belt.
