A140 doesnt alway start wont crank lights on can hear slight humming battrry ok key ok can bump start


Starter is bad. If you can hear a humming like a spinning but not engaging then you have a bald spot on you fly wheel. Not a cheap fix

My stater is free,spinning thn grindingmon the stop but it doesnt do it all the ti,me but is slowly getting worste its a 2001 z3 roadster 3.0im i replaced the crank positioning sensor but did nothing...


replace the starter and the flywheel-the bad starter has not engaged the teeth on the flywheel fully and has ground some teeth off so you'll fit that space every once in a while-cheers Denny

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.

Sometimes when I turn the key to start,get just a click and after several tries will start up.Battery terminals were pretty dirty, cleaned and replaced both lugs. problem still remains, it happens maybe...


The most common cause of a "No Crank" condition is a bad starter solenoid. The starter solenoid is a large coil that, most often, sits on top of the starter and engages the Bendix drive with the flywheel and sends power to the starter. If the internal coil goes bad, the solenoid won't engage the Bendix or turn the starter on. This condition will not cause any noticeable noise other than the clicking.

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.
