If it's turning over but not starting and is not the starter it could be the alternator, battery, or solenoid.

Car died at stop light, and makes a whirring sound when I try to start it. Won't take a jump and radio comes on but headlights don't.


The whirring sound is your starter spinning. But the solenoid gear is not pushing out and connecting with the flywheel to crank the engine.

1985 Honda aero nb50m won't start. When I try to start it the engine makes no sound to indicate its trying to crank up. All I get is the sound of the starter spinning. Battery is good. Please help!


If you starter is turning with a high spin sound then your starter is bad or you have a flat spot on your fly wheel. Sometimes you can take a hammer and tap on the starter to get to turn again. If you
have a flat spot and you get past it then you will most likely to keep starting it for awhile until you get to that spot again.

Turn key get nothing jump starter and sylenoid just spins


i cant dope out that symptoms.

does it crank or not. be clear there.

no car starts (but my 6sp) if it dont crank.

on A/T cars cranking is a first thing. so does it.?

Solenoids do not spin, the stroke only , it a linear motion.

the Sol. moves the pinion and the main contactor switch only.



my guess is the Starter spins and the crank don\'t spin,

you hear the starter motor spin up, it sings. like bird.

that means the starter /solenoid are bad. (crude)

if the battery is good and or jumper starting off a running car.



It can just be a dirty starter pinion, clean it , repeat.

fixed many for this. i have.



battery cable lugs clean, and good. no green rust.

bad cable usually just make a loud THUNK sound. no spin.

Starterrelay 2007 chryslermagnum engine will not turn over


turn over means , ZERO !
does the starter turn over or does the crank shaft turn over.?
see that gross ambiguity?
engines CRANK , the starter can spin fast and the crankshaft sits still.
then starts (EFI does this part, spark and fuel)
then sustain start called running. (EFI keeps to so...)
its 3 steps, which does yours fail. no crank>?

if confused, look at the crank shaft damper pulley.
you can see the actually crank spin .
most folks know the sound of cranking is good. a very unique sound.

no crank
no start
stalls after starting

2002 Kia Rio, sometimes it starts up fine. More and more often it sounds like the starter motor is spinning, but its not engaging. So it's not even attempting to turn over the engine. It's not a clicking,...


very good post, few like it.
this is the starter free spinning
the solenoids job is the engage the teeth the fly wheel (ring gear)

the pinon shaft in starter is dirty, clean it (easy fix)
bad starter solenoid. get a new starter , most solenoids cost more.
your suspisons are dead on.

My 1997 cheverolet truck will not crank but it makes the sound like its trying to crank what could it be


If the starter is spinning, but not connecting with the flywheel, the teeth on the flywheel could be damaged, or the starter drive may be faulty.

I have 1996 grand caravan 3.8. I replaced the starter and it wont crank over, starter just spins


Do a voltage drop on the solenoid

You either don't have battery voltage or
two bad starters,or some flywheel issue

Starter spins but dose not turn over


If you can hear it spin(starter), but not actually hear the motor turning over or trying to crank/start..... Sounds like starter not engaging-Replace starter. Small possibility flywheel is damaged, but less likely.

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.
