Your starter drive mechansm drive teeth will be hitting the flywheel or flexplate's teeth. In any event, change it immediately as you do not want to have to change the flyweel (flexplate) as well because it's teeth may be ground down - which is not good and will be expensive to fix. hope this helps you ,Rick

Starter winding like a vacuum but won't turn over the engine


If your starter is spinning but no engaging the flywheel, then you have 2 possibilities going on here, the # 1 and most likely cause is the bendix on the starter is not kicking out to engage the flywheel so you'll need a new starter... pretty cheap fix.

# 2 is that for some reason the teeth on the flywheel have been chewed away and now the starter gear can't crab the flywheel, this would only be a secondary answer if for some reason your starter had been grinding while trying to engage. Just an FYI, this is very rare but has happened, considering that your engine flywheel stops at the same spot every time you turn your engine off, so the starter is constatly grabbing the same flywheel teeth all its life. For this fix, you'll have to have the transmission removed and have a new flywheel installed on your engine.

Starter stays engaged on my 06 Chevy Malibu


There are a few possibilities...
  1. Starter improperly shimmed and is biding to flywheel.
  2. Starter or flywheel teeth worn causing binding (not likely)
  3. Starter solenoid return spring broken.
  4. Ignition switch problem causing starter to stay powered after key released.

Starter for my 1994 Suzuki Swift 4cylinder not working. It won't even click


Check your ground cable and battery connections. Body grounds will give problems. Check and see if starter is engaged into flywheel. also Low voltage will cause a problem with starter bendex locking into flywheel.One more thing is check starter ground,If starter is not grounding it will cause problems.

65 mustang l6 200 cid. Starter motor seems to keep "locking" up flywheel. Why is it doing that? Best fix?


This could be a starter solenoid defect but if this has been a problem for some time, the ring gear could be chewed up or have missing or broken teeth. Itmay be possible to fix the problem by shimming the solenoid but I would check out the other items first

Got a 95 mitsubishi galant 4 cil starter/flywheel noise


If this noise is really loud you will need to replace the flywheel or flexplate (if automatic transmission it is called a flexplate) and the starter, both of the gears that drive the engine rotation during start up are damaged. This damage is likely due to a bent or cracked flexplate if it is a auto transmission or a defective starter engagement drive, this causes the starter motor gear to not fully engage the flywheel gear teeth and causes damage, the damaged death cause the loud noise you here when you start the car. No matter the cause of this there is only one fix, a new flywheel or flexplate and a new starter.

I have a 1996 astro van...when i go to start and turn ignition it makes this real bad grinding sound? could it be the flywheel or the starter ?


It could be either the flywheel or the starter.
If it's grinding, don't try it again until you've removed and examined the starter and flywheel. If the starter solenoid isn't fully engaging the bendix, it will cause the gear to grind; replace or rebuild the starter if that's the case.
But you should examine the flywheel to see if it is seriously damaged from the problems you've had. Put a mark on the flywheel using a magic marker, then examine the flywheel as you slowly turn the engine by hand. (make certain that the ignition is off when you do that, you don't want anything bad to happen to your hand.) The mark on the flywheel will indicate when you've been able to examine the all of the teeth on the starter ring.

Replaced starter 3 times. Replaced starter solenoid, ignition switch and key cylinder assembly. Starter won't release from flywheel.


Sounds like the Flywheel is damaged or out of alignment and it is causing a bind. Check your flywheel.

Grinding noise when ignition is turned


THe starter engages the fly wheel and in the process turns the motor over to cause it to crank. The grinding can be a bad starter causing the gear to either not engage fully or not disengage. It can also indicate missing teeth on the flywheel from damage from starter. If the car cranks and grinding goes away it points to the starter solenoid not engaging properly.. pushing gear into contact with flywheel. I would recommend replacing the starter and you can replace it with a good mechanical knowledge and DIY.
