When starting 1997 aspire in morning-delay in starting

When I start my Ford aspire sometimes in the morning. As soon as I turn the key, there is a few seconds delay and then it cranks. I was told that my starter was fine but it could be a starter relay. I tried to buy the relay today and was told this car didn't have one. So what could the problem be?

Starter solenoid probably.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Sequence of Operation

NOTE: An overrunning clutch in the drive assembly protects the starter motor (11002) from excessive speeds during the brief period before the driver releases the ignition switch (11572) from the START position (as the engine (6007) starts).

  1. The ignition switch is turned to the START position.
  1. The starter solenoid (11390) is energized, creating a magnetic field in the solenoid coil.
  1. The iron plunger core is drawn into the solenoid coil.
  1. A drive lever and pin (11067) connected to the drive assembly engages the starter drive (11350) to the flywheel ring gear.
  1. When the iron plunger core is all the way into the coil, its contact disc closes the circuit between the battery (10655) and the starter motor terminals.
  1. The current flows to the starter motor, and the starter drive cranks the flywheel (6375) and the crankshaft (6303).
  1. As current flows to the starter motor, the pull-in coil is bypassed.
  1. The hold-in coil keeps the starter drive engaged with the flywheel.
  1. The starter drive remains engaged until the ignition switch is released from the START position.

It could very well be your starter. I assume your battery is charged and we can mark that off. A starter will usually not go out instantly. It is a process. You can get it to start sometimes by hitting the starter with a hard object. Now, when you try to start the car and it doesn't, does it make a noise or not? If you get nothing, it is probably your starter. If it turns and doesn't start, it is something else.

It sounds like you need transmission fluid and filter change. This is one of the most overlooked maintenance items. It should be changed every 50k (30k if you tow a trailer) The delay in engaging gear is sign that trans fluid is tired or REALLY cold. In cold weather this is a normal symptom on cold morning starts but goes away when warm. I'd get it changed and soon, before it turns into a $$$ repair.

Put a test light on the starter ignition terminal,on the starter,if the test light lights up as soon as you turn the key to the start position,and the starter delays starting,check the voltage at the same spot,with a volt meter.If the voltage is lees than 12 volts,and then jumps to the 12 volts,after the delay,then replace the ignition switch.If the voltage is at 12 volts when the key is turned to start the car,and the delay occurs,replace the starter.

Try turning the steering wheel with one hand and turn the key with the other. Sometimes when the column locks it keeps pressure on the lock cylinder and you have to relieve the pressure by turning the wheel to take the pressure off.

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....
