The bell housing of your gear box is bolted to the engine. Either at the front or rear of the engine you will find the starter motor bolted to the engine adjacent to the bell housing for your gearbox. The starter motor has to engage with the flywheel to start your car and the clutch is also bolted to the fly wheel.

Will your car turn over if the starter is not working

You can test the alternator without taking it off by simply starting the vehicle and while it is running, remove the positive battery connection. If the alternator is bad, it will stall. The starter should turn over with ease and not labor while doing so.. If it is laboring, it could be the starter or the battery. An Advanced auto store will test the battery for you while it is in the car. Simply take it to the store, go inside and ask one of the tech's inside to test it for you. If you've ruled out the alternator and battery, it is most likely the starter.

I ve vchanged the battery and alternator on my 94 nissan sentra and the system still wont charge what is the cause

My friend is a Honda Vehicle Technican who owns a 1994 Nissan Sentra which had kept dying on him. He had called the AAA driver who stated that the alternator was good as noted on the print out report when the AAA driver ran the check on the system. It turned the alternator was bad, which somehow also affected the starter. While the AAA driver had jump started the car, the ignition switch relay got broken; and the small positive cable connection got a short; so it all, he replaced the alternator, the starter, the battery and got a new battery cable connectors, ignition switch relay and fuse for the inside of the interior lights -- and he has no problems since after spending 4 days on this problem. It would had been easier had he had a lift and the right equipment but nevertheless he got it done but missed his work -- but at least its fixed.

Replaced alternator but car wont start?

If when you try to turn it over it just makes a clicking noise (kinda like a dead battery) its a broken starter. I found that with most vehicles the starter usually takes a **** before the alternator. Sometimes if you can tap on the starter with something metal you can get it to turnover but that only works one or two times.

Blowing fuseable links from starter to alt, (well one) the gage is smaller then the OEM, however would a bad starter cause this fuseable link to fail, as the altenater is brand new

If this link runs from the alternator to the starter then i would say it likely but i belive the connection is to recarge the battery, the link that runs from the alt to starter connects to starter with another cable that runs to battery, so this link is used to charge the battery, heres a wiring diagram to show you. i would say its morelikely that the problem may be a bad alternator or the wiring from alt to starter is shorting. follow the wire (fuseable link) from alternator to starter and check it for shorting onto something, if nothing found then iwould say its the alternator or starter. to make sure which is the problem, when the link pops can you start the car, will starter spin over the engine if the answer is yes then replace the starter but if the starter doesnt spin engine with blown link then replace the starter, here are the wiring diagram to help.johnjohn2_148.gifjohnjohn2_149.gif

I have changed my alternator four times and it just went out again so this will be the fifth time. i have a new battery also. could there be a different problem causing the alternator to keep going bad?

A) check if the signal to the from pcm(computer) to micro procesor inside the rectifier is on and off if on all the times it will set a too hi output level and alternator will be damage B) from alternator to battery there is a fuse link is it still there? check c) before the electricity reach alternator from the battery first goes to the starter > is the wire from alternator to starter attached to the correct bolt at the starter solenoid ? check one of the big bolt at the starter has positive all the times and the other big bolt only at the moment you energyse the starter and send positive from solenoid to the core of starter if the alternator-starter wire is at the wrong bolt starter damage and fuse link damage is the result
