SOURCE: Have 94 ram 1500 replaced starter and

are you sure you got the wires back on tight? Also it sounds like the bendex is not kicking out like it is supose to.....Did you change the starter cylenoied?

even some new starters are bad, it doesent happen much but it does happen. You might even take the starter back out and run Jumper cables to the starter. See if the bendex will kick out and stay out untial you diconect the starter......Sorry for your run of bad luck and I hope this is of some help.

SOURCE: put new starter on and it won't do anything. the old one would spin, it just wouldn't engage.

need to know what you are working on always years make and model + engine size if it is a GM type you could have hooked up the wrong little wire to the wrong side or the starter could be bad please clearifyjlelandthomas

check your flywheel & starter, one or both will be missing teeth, or the starter isn't "throwing out" yo engage flywheel

SOURCE: My 1990 camry won't start sometimes. Starter

The first thing I would do is check your voltage ON THE BATTERY CABLES, not the battery. You could have corrosion on the battery terminals preventing you from getting full voltage to the starter.

1965 mustang starter fires but won't engage flywheel. it is a brand new starter


Doesn't matter. The forks inside the starter may be missing or broke off or bad spring in starter that pushes the gear out. Try new started. Starter may have to be shimmed to make contact with flywheel. Starter may be kicking out but not engaging flywheel.

2003 Lincoln Navigator starter grinding when starting


If you mean the starter grinds from time to time and won't crank the engine when it happens, the problem could be a bad spot on the flywheel and/or a faulty starter. The starter uses a magnet and bendix gear to push the starter gear into the flywheel. If the magnet or bendix is weak, the gear will not engage and can damage the teeth on the flywheel.
You need to have the starter removed and check the flywheel teeth for damage.

Starter works fine but won't crank engine. the pick up has to be given a push first before it starts


If the starter is spinning when you try to start but doesn't spin the engine over then you most likely have teeth missing off the flywheel ring gear. The facts that you say you have to push it and then it starts means the flywheel position changes and the starter has good teeth on the flywheel to engage. To confirm this next time the engine won't crank over remove the starter and look inside at the flywheel for missing flywheel teeth.

ANY FAULT CODES? HAVE YOU CHECKED THE STARTE DEPTH FOR PROPER CLEARANCE? HAVE YOU RITIATED THE FLYWHEEL TO LOOK FOR MISSING TEETH? I HAD AN 82 T/A AND THAT WAS WHAT CAUSED MY STARTER PROBLEMS.

Every so often when I try to start my 2005 F250 the starter will just spin. In every case so far when I try the second time, it will start ok.


If the starter is spinning without engaging the flywheel, chances are that the drive (called a bendix drive) is going bad. Part of that unit is a sprague or also known as an overrunning clutch. it's purpose is to permit the engine to spin faster than the starter when it fires up, otherwise the starter would explode due to the excessive rpm's. If the sprague is worn, or the gear slide is dirty or pitted, the gear end won't work properly. Since most times when that part goes bad, other parts of the starter are usually worn enough to warrant replacement, the best option is to replace the starter as a unit. (so in two weeks, you aren't taking it apart again to replace the brushes etc.)

I have a tuff stuff mini starter on a street rod with a 350 chev motor half the time the starter doesnt turn the motor over it engages but dosent make contact with the fly wheel, then two tries later it...


the starter needs to be able to drive the gear on the bendix out to the flywheel or as you said, it won't work. Generally the solenoid does that by way of a lever. I'd remove the starter and check to see what's causing it to bind up. I've built lots of high horsepower engines and unless there's a huge clearance problem I use a normal factory starter (old style) on just about everything. On very high compression engines I make an ignition cut out so you can get the engine spinning without spark and then turn on the ignition.
If you can see the gear not engaging then it's not being driven out far enough. If you can't see it, then suspect the bendix itself as well.. It's an overrunning clutch and if that's bad it will engage but fail to turn the flywheel.
