SOURCE: Starter or solinoid?

I never heard of a starter solonoid coming with shims. Did you replace the starter or starter solonoid?
What engine do you have?

SOURCE: wont start, new battery, relay good, starter good.

Check the Starter Solenoid mounted near the battery.Check it out in the dark...have someone try to start it and see if it sparks at the solenoid.connections may be loose.Also check/wiggle wiring harness to starter.

SOURCE: Starter problem 1988 Jeep Wrangler

I sit here on this site and help people with their issues all the time, and I do it for free. I've been in the mechanics trade for over 24 years, and I think I have a good idea of what I'm talking about. I don't know it all, and I even need assistance from time to time. The only thing I ask in return for my help, is a good rating from the people I help. Once you replace your solenoid, your issue will be resolved. Yes the fix is that simple. Remember to disconnect the negative cable from the battery before you replace it, so you don't ground anything out.

SOURCE: 1988 Jeep Wrangler starting problems. I replaced

you are saying it is getting spark, and fuel, right? If it is getting spark, and fuel in to the throttle body, check compression-make sure the Mass Air Flow sensor is plugged in, and double check your spark-you say you replaced all those ignition items, but do not say that you have spark.

Car makes loud noise starting


sounds like your starter needs shimmed and/or replaced or you have a flat spot on your flywheel. the sound your hearing is from the starter motor gears not properly aligning with the flywheel gears and quite literally grinding material off of one or the other. if you continue to force it your flywheel will need replaced if not already

When starting car starter makes a screeching noise, starter is new


On GM starters,you have to check the clearance between the starter pinion and the flywheel.The usual tool used to determine the clearance is a large paper clip,bend the end out,use a screwdriver to engage the pinion to the flywheel,and see if the paper clip will fit in the valley of the flywheel teeth.Or, just get a couple of shims,and try adding shims until the screech goes away.

My vehicle has difficulty starting, it's weak to start and makes a loud screeching sound at the same time.


The problem is the starter is not meshing with the flywheel properly or the gear on the starter is stripped or the flywheel gear is stripped. You will have to remove the starter and then check the flywheel gear they should be sharp looking if they look sort of rounded then you have to replace the flywheel. If the flywheel is OK then check the gear on the starter and the same rule applies (Sharp or Rounded ) If this is OK then the Starter is not position to the flywheel properly so you must adjust it by shimming it. Sometimes you have to replace the starter because the starter has been lose and the holes for the bolts have widened and there is to much play.

The starter in my 95 Isuzu is going how do i replace it


I have pasted the procedure from autozone.com below, but I also recommend you read my starter post at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r5973094-starter_replace and let me know if you have questions.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle on jackstands.
  3. Label and disconnect the battery and starter control wires from the starter.
  4. If equipped, remove the starter bracket and/or heat shield.
  5. Remove the starter-to-engine mounting bolts.
  6. Lower the starter from the engine. If any shims are present, keep them for reinstallation purposes.

To install:
  1. Install the starter and shims, if equipped, to the engine. Tighten the mounting bolts to 30-34 ft. lbs. (39-44 Nm).
  2. Install the starter bracket and/or heat shield, if equipped.
  3. Reconnect the electrical connectors to the starter.
  4. Lower the vehicle.
  5. Connect the negative battery cable.
  6. Start the vehicle to make sure the starter functions correctly.


SHIMMING


Starter noise during cranking and after the engine fires is often a result of too much or tool little distance between the starter pinion gear and the flywheel. A high pitched whine during cranking (before the engine fires) can be caused by the pinion and flywheel being too far apart. Likewise, a whine after the engine starts (as the key is released) is often a result of the pinion-flywheel relationship being too close. In both cases flywheel damage can occur. Shims are available in various sizes to properly adjust the starter on its mount. In order to check and adjust the shims, you will also need a flywheel turning tool, available at most auto parts stores.
If your vehicle's starter emits the type of noise previously described, follow the shimming procedure below:

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Raise and support the vehicle safely using jackstands.
  3. Remove the torque converter/flywheel cover from the bottom of the bell housing.
  4. Using the flywheel turning tool, turn the flywheel and examine the flywheel teeth. If damage is evident, the flywheel should be replaced.

Most starters are equipped with an access hole in which a small screwdriver or prybar may be inserted to push the starter pinion outward into contact with the flywheel.
  1. Move the starter pinion and clutch assembly so the pinion and flywheel teeth mesh. If necessary, rotate the flywheel so that a pinion tooth is directly in the center of the two flywheel teeth and on the centerline of the two gears, as shown in the accompanying illustration.

Normal pinion-to-flywheel clearance is about 0.01-0.06 in. (0.5-1.5mm).
  1. Check the pinion-to-flywheel clearance by using a 0.020 in. (0.5mm) wire gauge (a spark plug wire gauge may work here, or you can make your own). Make sure you center the pinion tooth between the flywheel teeth and the gauge-NOT in the corners, as you may get a false reading. If the clearance is under this minimum, shim the starter away from the flywheel by adding 0.04 in. (1mm) shims one at a time to the starter mount. Check clearance after adding each shim, but do not use more than 2 shims.
  2. If the clearance is over 0.060 in. (1.5mm), shim the starter towards the flywheel. Broken or severely mangled flywheel teeth are also a good indicator that the clearance here is too great. Shimming the starter towards the flywheel is done by adding shims to the outboard starter mounting pad only. Check the clearance after each shim is added. Add 0.013 in. (0.33mm) shims at this location, one at a time, but do NOT add a total of more than 4 shims.

Starter problems


is this a screeching sound of it is then, you may need to adda shim between starter and the mounting surface. Double check all wiring to starter and make sure they are not broken especially wire to the bendix of the starter (starter selonoid). Get back top me if you need more help. Thanks for using FIX YA

My starter teeth all broke off any reasons


Drive may have been engaged when engine running, like as in accidentally forgetting it was already running, or drive was sticky & stayed engaged after start up. If this is first time it's happened, I wouldn't panic, but observe flywheel/ring gear teeth when you change starter. Check for good alignment when installing new one, just to be sure. Any odd noises from starter prior to this happening?
