It sounds like the new starter is faulty , I would suggest having it checked by a service shop or a starter rebuild shop, most parts supply stores dont charge for this test but you will have to remove the starter from the truck.

Working on a 2009 Hyundai Sonata 2.4L with automatic trans. the starter ring gear is bad and I am wanting to find out if it is replaceable. Is it welded or bolted to the torque converter?


Neither it uses a flex plate and the ring gear is welded to said flex plate, any parts store can get you one or go to a salvage yard and get one.

Starter grinds and engine doesn't turn over when it does start it runs fine


Typically this sounds like a chewed up ring gear or flex plate but if you recently replaced that, the likely culprit is the pinion gear on the starter. It could be chewed up or the starter is not throwing it out enough. Also could be that the starter isn't properly shimmed.

Hi there, i am in desperate need of help. My starter went out 3 weeks ago, bought a new one, and had it replaced. Still didnt turn on but had a mechanic fix it by unlocking something that got stuck on the...


Without being able to hear the sound it's hard to point you in the right direction without more details. My first assumption from what you've described would be that the noise is present only while cranking/initial starting. If this is so, there are a few possible reasons for this. 1. The starter that was put is is faulty. 2. The starter was incorrectly installed. (Some starters actually have an alignment and/or shims although it's uncommon on most cars.) 3. The starter that was installed was the incorrect starter for your vehicle. (A lot of vehicles have different starters for automatic and manual transmissions that'll look identical and bolt on but the throw of the starter gear is different and/or the gear's teeth on the starter is different and doesn't properly mesh with the ring gear. This will ruin the teeth on the ring gear on your flex plate/flywheel.) 4. The teeth on the ring gear of your flex plate/flywheel were previously worn because of your old starter and now the teeh on the starter gear are not properly meshing. (This will ruin any starter that you put in.)

Hope this helps. If you can provide any more information, I'd be happy to help you to further narrow down the problem. e.g. Year, make, model, engine size, transmission type of the vehicle and part number of the starter installed. A better description of the noise and conditions of occurrence. e.g. A rough grinding noise while holding the key in the start position followed by a hollow metallic pinging noise or prolonged whining. Etc.

Flywheel spins freely but engine does not turn over


not really possible unless you have a broken crank shaft at the rear main bearing or if automatic then the flex plate has broken off around the flywheel bolts . The torque converter will hold the flex plate in position and if manual then the pressure plate on the throw out bearing will maintain the flywheel in position. Unless you are saying that the motor spins freely but will not start which is different . If that is the case check that the cam shaft is turning(broken timing belt) and bent valves.

Not starting


the ring gear on the fly wheel may have damaged teeth or not have the right gear teeth count to be compatible . Pinion teeth have to match the ring gear teeth or they have trouble meshing and that makes it hard to turn over. If the ring gear teeth have been damaged then the gear box will have to come out to get the fly wheel / flex plate off. If it is auto then it is a simple matter of replacing the flex plate . But if manual the ring gear is removed from the flywheel and a new one fitted. Most accredited service shops can do this operation. count the number of teeth on the ring gear and the number on the starter pinion and take the figures to an auto electrician and he will know it they are right.

83 elcamino keeps blowing starters 6 so far in 8 months solenoid stops engaging


I will try to help. Several things about some starters, I remember there were some which had shims needed for the (starter to block) mounting bolts. Seems like a certain clearance was needed for proper mesh of starter gear to ring gear.

If ring gear was replaced, was there a difference in the number of teeth on the ring gear? Your starter drive needs to match if there was a difference. Either way you need compatibile spacing.

Overadvanced motor. Fighting compression will strain the starter. Now there were some heavy duty starters for big Cadillac motor. But these starters would also mount on a Buick 350. If you have higher compression these heavy duty starters would be a good choice.

I changed ****** with new flexplate when cranking over starter and flex plate grind. could i have installed flex plate backwards


If you had a broken flex plate chances are the starter drive gear is no good as well, replace it.

97 Ford Power Stroke, starting problem.


Does the starter engage the drive gear with the action of a solenoid? It may not be pushing (pulling) the gear far enough. There may be a slipping ring gear on the flex-plate. If you pull the starter again, you can try to see if the ring moves in and out or appears to be slipping around on the flex-plate. The flex plate could be loose on the crankshaft. In any case, the engine or the transmission would have to come out. Check the starter engagement before removing the torus and flex-plate.
