Why can,t i bump start my ford escort? also the starter motor seems to be jammed.

If you cant push start your vehicle, AND the starter is locked up, then you MOST LIKELY have a locked up motor. You will have to replace the motor. BUT, before you spend all that money, i would try putting a new starter on the car first. I sure hope this helps, James Booth

I migrated here to the country of Trinidad from the US and i brought over my 1996 Mustangt GT and now my starter has given up and no one seems to know anything about my vehicle in the island. Can you...

Please see my tip at . These are generic instructions. specific instructions for your car are pasted below, please get back to me if you have any questions.



  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Raise the front of the vehicle and install jackstands beneath the frame. Firmly apply the parking brake and place blocks in back of the rear wheels.
  3. Tag and disconnect the wiring at the starter.

WARNING When detaching the hardshell connector at the S-terminal, grasp the plastic shell to pull it off. Do not pull on the wire itself. Be sure to pull the connector straight off to prevent damage to the connector and S-terminal. If any part of the connector is damaged, replace the damaged component.

  1. Unfasten the starter mounting bolts and remove the starter.


Fig. Fig. 5: The starter motor (arrow) is mounted under the vehicle, next to the transmission


Fig. Fig. 8: Some starters use a self-threading bolt to hold the starter cable


Fig. Fig. 9: Detach the wiring, unfasten the mounting bolts and remove the starter motor from the vehicle

To install:

  1. Position the starter motor against the engine and install the mounting bolts. Tighten the mounting bolts to 15-19 ft. lbs. (21-27 Nm).
  2. Install the starter solenoid connector by pushing it straight on. Ensure that the connector locks in position with a notable click.

Install the starter cable nut to the starter solenoid B-terminal. Tighten the nut to 80-123 inch lbs. (9-14 Nm).
  1. Connect any remaining wiring to the starter motor.
  2. Lower the front of the vehicle and remove the wheel blocks.
  3. Connect the negative battery cable.

Plymouth voyager won't start

You need to voltage drop test the starter electrical circuit . Do you know how to use a DVOM- digital volt ohm meter ? Do you know what a wiring diagram is an how to read one , so you know what wires to test ?

I'm pretty sure this is because the starter died ????? Never assume , test don't guess ! And if you don't know how to test automotive electrical systems your best bet ,take it to someone who does .
Test the heavy positive cable to the starter , corrosion cause's unwanted resistance and a no start or slow crank . You test with voltage drop .
Starter Voltage Drop

Or you test the control side through the starter motor relay ! Do you know what a relay is ?
On this video he shows a horn relay but the starter motor relay works the same .
VEHICLE RELAYS Operation Diagnosis

Find free wiring diagrams here Enter vehicle info. year , make , model and engine size. Under system click on engine then under subsystem click on starting . Click the search button then the blue link . You will see the PCM - engine computer turns on the starter motor relay .

Engine won't turn over. battery seems to work fine

If you keep trying does it eventually catch?

The contacts inside the starter wear down with age/usage and require replacement from time to time. The contacts are available from your local dealer for about $8-$16 depending on your area. There are two that you need, and three variations available so you will need to have them out to match them up.

After removing the battery negative terminal and removing the starter from the vehicle:
Remove the three 8mm screws on the back of the trapezoidal cover on the solenoid.
Remove the cover.
Pull out the plunger and its' spring.
Inside you will see two copper contactson opposite sides, one will have a wire attached to a ring on it.
Remove both contacts by unbolting the 12 and 14mm nuts on the outside of the case and pushing the bolts through.
Make note of the order of the contact, paper, plastic spacer, oring.
Install in reverse order and your starter will be good for likely another 100k :)

The starter is located in middle of 96 3.8L T$C Van about at the level of the visible row of spark plugs ... you must get under the van to see the solenoid and starter. 
Here are the directions to replace it ... I had the hardest time putting the spacer up in place - it was like a big gasket but made of metal and the bolt holes held it in place ... it would not stay on the starter for me.
Disconnect the negative battery cable.

Raise and safely support the front of the vehicle securely on jackstands.

Disengage the solenoid wiring connector from the terminal. This connection may be held in place by a retaining nut, or it could be a push-in connector. Mine was a push in with screw driver to release then pull the wire fitting out.
Remove the B+ nut and wire from the starter motor terminal. Need deep socket.
Remove the starter motor-to-transaxle bellhousing mounting bolts - only 2!!
Remove the starter from the vehicle. If equipped, remove the starter motor spacer. Mine had the metal spacer that looks like a metal gasket ... it seems to keep dirt and debree out of the bell housing and seals it off from dirt.
To install:
If equipped, hold the starter motor spacer in position - hardest part!!!
Install the starter motor into position on the vehicle.
Install the starter motor-to-transaxle bellhousing mounting bolts. Tighten the mounting bolts to 40 ft. lbs. (54 Nm).
Engage the solenoid wiring connector onto the starter terminal.
Connect the B+ wire and tighten the retaining nut to 90 inch lbs. (10 Nm).
Lower the vehicle.
Connect the negative battery cable.
Verify starter motor operation.
Good luck and hope this helps

Car won't turn over

Probably a bad starter motor.  grab yourself a chilton or haynes book for your vehicle and look up the starter motor, it should list the proper procedures for testing and replacing.  Worst case scenario is a seized engine, but that doesn't seem very likely in this case.  Maybe even a wiring issue?  hope this helps.
