SOURCE: 98 lesabre grinding starter

most likely your bendex wheel in the starter is not engaging the flywheel this could be due to a bad solenoid on the starter. chances are it's a bad starter, i would check to make sure all connections to starter are tight and you have atleast 11.5 -12.5 volts of current in the battery. low voltage can cause this problem as well

SOURCE: 1991 Nissan 240SX starter will not turn!

If you've applied 12VDC to the solenoid and it does nothing, not even click, then the solenoid is toast!

SOURCE: grinding when starting, replaced starter one month

The flywheel is worn in that specific area. Engines tend to stop in the same one or two positions, and it is those teeth that get cachunked every time you turn the key. This is ok if the bendix does a good job of threading the gear into the flywheel teeth, but the problem is that now that the teeth are half worn away, the starter attempts to mount its gear to the teeth, but before the gear is fully seated, the contacts in the motor make, the motor starts to turn, and the not-yet-seated gear bounces off of the flywheel teeth. This is what causes the teeth-grinding sound (your teeth grinding in your mouth too!) when you turn the key. . There are two solutions: The first is to, of course, replace the ring gear. . The second is hard to explain, but a good starter rebuild center (if there is such an accessible animal around anymore) will know what I'm talking about: The starter gear must have the lagging edge of each tooth ground so that each tooth will look like a chisel. The "pushing" side of each tooth must be straight and come to the point (and not be beveled). The "non-pushing" lagging side of each starter tooth should have the bevel ground in on that side. This grinding is done easily by a small angle grinder or a Dremel Tool with a cutoff wheel. . This does one thing: It assures that the gear will "spin in" without bouncing. If ground correctly (it's not hard to do), you will get successful starts every time. This is a common fix for Toyota 4-cyl with this horrible all-too-common problem. Good luck.

SOURCE: Starter vs flywheel

It sounds like the starter is not engaging fully and you should change the starter.When you remove the starter check the flywheel\flex plate(Flexplate for automatic trany) for damage.

Turn my key to start car, 05 impala, and let go but sometimes sounds and acts like im still tryin to turn car over... What is this?


This is perfectly normal on 02 and up GM cars The starter will engage and release when the car's engine runs. If you let go of the switch before the engine runs, the vehicle will continue to start until the engine starts. Once the vehicle starts, even if you crank it again, it will not grind your starter because of the anti-grind feature built with that model. Do not worry my friend, your car is fine!

My 95 Nissan Pathfinder will not run over when the key is turned on. Out fo the blue, I tried to start and will not. I turned the headlights on to see if there is actually a drain on the elctrical...


THIS KINDA COMMON ON FORGEIN CARS AND TRUCKS , SOMETIMES YOULL HEAR A CLICK AND SOMETIMES NOTHING, THIS SOUNDS LIKE A BAD STARTER, IF YOU GET SOMEONE TO HOLD KEY IN THE CRANK POSTION WHILE YOU TAP STARTER WITH A HAMMER LIGHTLY IT MAY SPIN OVER , BUT THIS DOES SOUND LIKE A DEAD SPOT IN THE STARTER AND NEEDS TO BE REPLACED, GOOD LUCK.

91 Nissan 300zx weak grinding start.


Text from Nissan service manual troubleshooting section:
Step 1: Check to insure battery is 100% check voltage output. Should be up there at least 10 volts.

Step 2: Check starter

The guide continues, but one of these is your problem if your engine and system run fine after engine start.

Starting problem


Most likely it is your starter. The starter has "teeth" that interlock with "teeth" the turn the engine over and get it started, over time these teeth can wear down causeing the grinding sound you hear. And, until you turn the key a bunch of times and get it so it's on the good teeth, it won't start. That's why it sometimes does and sometimes doesn't.
