Why won't it start?


did you replace it with a new starter or a wrecker starter, maybe a bad starter. check the teeth on the flywheel they maybe damaged causing the starter not to engage. you may have to shim the starter. were there any shims when you pulled the original starter off.

I have a gmc Yukon denali. It wouldn't start and


Sometimes new starters have to be shimmed so that the gear on the starter lines up with the gear teeth on the flywheel on the motor. The grinding noise is the reason I say that is what's wrong. If there were shims already there, try taking them out. I hope this helps you

Chevy silverado 1500 305 engine would not start. Replaced starter & starter would not disengage


smaller of the 2 wires is on the wrong terminal,or the starter needs a shim to move it away from the ring gear,if it is too close it won't come out.

The starter only engages when it wants to.when the engine is cold it starts fine,but after driving it awhile and then shutting the motor off, it doesnt engage or turn the motor at all,not until it has sat...


u can bring ur car to a shop wen its hot an get a charging an starting system check,wat ur after is to see ur starter current amp draw, sounds like wen its hot its amping out meaning ur probably drawing over 250amps meaning ur starter motor is worn out internally,this test should confirm this allowing u to replace starter and ur issue being resolved...... good luck hope this helps

I INSTALLED ASTARTER IN 92 CHEV PU WORKS OK BUT AT FIRST GET GRINDING GEAR NOISE.


Sometimes the starter needs a shim installed to help this problem. If there was not a grinding noise with old starter you should be able to install a shim,these shims you can get at your auto parts store. they come in several thicknesses, most times you get 2 or 3 different thicknesses in a pack. Start with the thinner one and loosen the two starter bolts 3 to 4 turns then remove bolt furthest from engine , shim will slide in and slot at end should stradle bolt, align hole at other end and install other bolt and retighten bolts. test starter for noise,if noise is gone your done, if not try next thicker shim till noise is gone sometimes damage to the teeth on the flywheel can cause this noise but try the shims first. Good Luck!
