Check all connections from the battery to the starter. Also check all grounds. If all else fails take the starter and have it check.

Possible not shimmed correctly. The starter teeth have to engage correctly for the starter not to hang up. That's what probably happened & broke teeth off. You had better check your flywheel around the entire circumfrence as teeth may be missing from it as well. Starter won't engage if teeth and flywheel teeth in same spot are broken off. If the flywheel teeth are bad, it will be a spendy fix to put a new one on... Rick

actually you probably have a bad ignition box. I had a ford that done the same thing. there is a spring in the ign. box that when u turn the key over and then let go it is suppose roll the key back.but after time it will get weak or break,or the box itself will break causing malfunctions.

When I try to start the engine it makes a loud grinding noise and eventually the starter just spins. This is the 3rd starter I have replaced. Any ideas what the problem might be?


Year/make/model?? Sounds like a worn flywheel/ring gear located inside at the back of the engine. The transmission will have to be removed to access this ring gear. However, it can be checked for damage by removing the starter and ( in some cases there is an inspection plate at the bottom of the transmission ) looking at the ring gear for damage to the teeth that the starter contacts to turn over the engine

My son has a 94 ford ranger and we have replaced the clutch and flywheel when he first bought it. Now there is a grinding when he starts it and they are saying the teeth on flywheel are rounded off again....


The only thing the drives the flywheel is the starter drive, if its sticking or not properly aligned when the starter is replaced it will not properly engage or disengage. On many vehicles the OEM starter may have small metal shims installed to space it properly. I've seen it many times when DIY's don't replace them and this is one of the results. Don't know if your car starter has them or not, if it does that could explain the recurring cause.

I replaced my starter on my 94 ford ranger. my truck won't start, when it cranks, it makes a loud grinding noise. How can I fix this problem?


When buying starter motors it is essential that the starter pinion teeth are of the same pitch as the flywheel ring gear. Not all starters from the same make fit different engines because of this problem. However I would be checking that I had put the starter in the housing properly as any misalignment will cause your problem

2000 olds alero cranks then makes a metal grinding sound and won't start


You need to have your flywheel: replaced.Your starter motor engages against the fly wheel at the back of the motor. Every time your motor stops it tends to be in the same few positions (just the way things work) so there is more stress on some parts of your fly wheel than others. Because of this the teeth wear out on the fly wheel which means the starter can correctly engage on the fly wheel which is the grinding noise.

I have a 99 Ford Superduty 7.3 Diesel. It is making a really bad grinding/screeching sound just after it starts and is warming up. It wouldn't ******* off all the way even after the key was turned


indicates that the starter motor is stuck in the ring gear
possibly faulty starter relay or starter solenoid
pull the starter as the pinion over ride clutch is probably damaged ( noise ) and have the start circuit and relay checked
have the starter bench tested for serviceability by an accredited auto electrician

Won't start. Harsh grinding sound from starter


Starter has teeth that mesh with teeth on the flex plate . most of these type grinding noises are do to missing teeth on the starter gear or flex plate missing teeth .Does your vehicle have a automatic transmission ? Have you had starter replaced lately ?

Need advice please


Bleed right side first...open valve on caliper and have someone step gently down on brake. close bleeder. repeat till no air comes out. Repeat on drivers side. Keep master cyl full while doing this.
Grinding noise can come from bad starter drive gear, bad flywheel teeth or misaligned starter. You have to check this...I can't see that far!!! Best way to see flywheel teeth is to remove starter and turn engine by hand while looking into starter hole.

Starters


Most likely it is that the ring rear teeth (on the flywheel) have been chewed up. Take out the starter and have someone turn the motor by hand and watch the teeth as they go by... there will be one or more areas of damage to the teeth. If the teeth look ragged all the way around the best fix is to pull the trans and replace the flywheel. If it's just a few teeth and they aren't absolutely mashed it may be possible to dress them up with a small file... use the file to knock down any burrs and smooth the bevels that let the pinion engage smoothly... if the starter pinion is all mashed then begin again with another starter... I have done this successfully with ring gears that aren't already a total loss... it's kind of tedious but it's worth a shot to keep from pulling the trans. Importantly, remember not to repeatedly grind the starter... at first sign of this pull out the starter and investigate the cause... it will save headaches later... Hope this helps... ;-)

High pitch noise when turn key to start / engine not turning over


Check your battery first. Cold weather does horrible things to car batteries... if it's more of a grinding sound I would say that your starter gear is bad. I believe they call it a ring gear? I had a similar problem with a kushman scooter that I use to deliver snowcones through the neighborhoods. It has teeth that need to engage and if those teeth have been grinded down it will have a hard time engaging....
