    the starter doesnt even make a noise. then when it does start the engine just whines before it catches.

    Fuel pressure? That has nothing to so with the starter.

    I would recommend that you either have the starter taken apart, and diagnosed for bad solenoid contacts, which is cheaper than replaceing the starter. I am reasonably sure that the contacts are worn.

    When you say it "Won't turn over", does the starter make a click noise, and do nothing? Do you hear one single click?

Will start sometimes and wont start sometimes. batt is good. do you think it is the starter? it doesnt do it all the time


If the starter rotates [ turn-over ] the engine, then it isn't the starter. If it dosen't turn-over all the time, then it could be the problem. Other items that will cause issues are the nutrual saftey switch,or the igntion switch.
The starter can be tested in the car, many autopart stores will do this for free.

2000 reg clio 1.2 and SOMETIMES it will not start.


Hi, if when you turn the key to start the car the engine dont turn over as if its trying to start then this indicates that you have a problem with your starter motor it is the selanoid on the starter starting to fail

Sometimes it will turn the engine over starting the car and other times it will do nothing and you might here a slight clocking noise coming from the starter motor.

If your battery is ok and holds the charge ie the lights are bright without the car running then this indicates that your battery is ok and that the starter needs replacing. Sometimes you can get away with giving the starter motor a few taps with a hammer this sometimes clears any muck inside the starter selonoid getting it working for a bit longer but eventually it wont work at all so its best ot get this done sooner rather that later.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

1998 oldsmobile sometimes starts


Battery could be not holding a consistent charge. If not, Voltage regulator, starter motor or starter solenoid need replacing....Bad wire connections to all 3 also possible. Voltage regulator should be least expensive to try through process of elimination

This Too Is A Starter Problem, If >>The Battery Terminals Are Clean <<And >>The Starter Terminals Are Clean and TIGHT <<,I Would Wait Till It Wont Start Again and SMACK THE STARTER 2-3 times with a HAMMER then Try Starting it. If It Starts then it is The Starter. I KNOW this seems A Little UNCONVENTIONAL BUT For 30 Years This Technique Has Diagnosed HUNDREDS of STARTER Problems for me.

1995 subaru wont start the starter and battery are brand new,


Iwould check where the grounds at the motor and body. Make sure there is no rust built up under them. Sometimes just loosening and retightening them is enough to make a good contact. Good luck and have a good day.

There are various things this could be ie inhibitor switch on auto box relays wiring fault or ignition barrel problems try putting the starting the car in N instead of P and wiggle gear lever about other option bypass everything and connect a live feed straight to starter motor cranking wire which is located on the starter motor, if car still wont turn over tap starter motor with a hammer, if hammer trick works then you need a new starter

2000 silverado sometimes start, other times not so much


To determine if recognizing park is the issue simply place vehicle in neutral and attempt to start with your foot firmly on the brake. Starter may have a missing tooth or starter solenoid may have an issue. I would also check ground wire to frame and connections at the starter for fraying or loose connection
