You have some teeth missing on your flywheel most likely. There is probably nothing wrong with any of your starters. If the starter is clicking, then you need more power to it (basically try jumping the car), did you take a look at the flywheel before putting the new starter on as teeth missing on the flywheel is probably the case and then you have a bigger problem on your hands which I'm sorry to say won't be fun. Starters automatically should have the gear pop out when the voltage is applied to it and if its brand new then the chance of it not working right is almost zero. So, sorry but you will have to remove the starter to check the flywheel or flexplate (whichever you call it). Spin it all of the way around but the missing teeth should be right where the starter would engage with it. You could also test the missing teeth theory by turning the engine over a little and see if it will start. If it starts with teeth, then it should start fine as long as too many teeth are missing. Let me know what you find and what other questions you may have.

I have a 99 dodge intrepid 3.2, I replaced the old starter with a new one and now the solenoid drive will not engage the flywheel, help me please


Did you check out the basics? Does the starter motor spin and kick out the drive gear? Did you check the flywheel teeth? Did the old starter motor use shims?

Turn key, solenoid whines does not turn over, ground wire from battery gets hot.touched cable directly to pos term and starter, nothing happened.


Check the battery is fully charged, clean the battery posts and terminals, with a volt meter check for battery voltage on the battery side of the starter solenoid , if ok check for battery voltage on starter side of solenoid while starter engaged , if no voltage replace solenoid, if voltage fault in starter motor.

1999 Pontiac Sunfire 5 speed won't start. Replaced spark plugs and checked ignition coil (fine). Sounds like it wants to turn over but makes a "whining" noise. Please assist. Thank you!


Is the engine turning over with the key in the start position? If the engine is not spinning over and you hear a whining noise, the starter is not engaging the flywheel. If the engine is turning over with the starter engaged, the engine has most likely jumped time that creates low or no compression which results in the whining noise.

Turn key get nothing jump starter and sylenoid just spins


i cant dope out that symptoms.

does it crank or not. be clear there.

no car starts (but my 6sp) if it dont crank.

on A/T cars cranking is a first thing. so does it.?

Solenoids do not spin, the stroke only , it a linear motion.

the Sol. moves the pinion and the main contactor switch only.



my guess is the Starter spins and the crank don\'t spin,

you hear the starter motor spin up, it sings. like bird.

that means the starter /solenoid are bad. (crude)

if the battery is good and or jumper starting off a running car.



It can just be a dirty starter pinion, clean it , repeat.

fixed many for this. i have.



battery cable lugs clean, and good. no green rust.

bad cable usually just make a loud THUNK sound. no spin.

Wont turn over


Not likely, a bad solenoid usually results in nothing starting at all. The starter only runs a few seconds when first starting the engine. It could be the alternator which is always running. The starter basically replace the old hand crank form decades ago and simple rotates the engine while the fuel burn cycle engages.

Good battery, key will not engage starter, jumping starter will not engage drive


jumping across the solenoid will spin the starter but will not engage the pinion in the ring gear. Have a load test done on the battery as I suspect that there is a bad cell and you are not getting a full charge. If the battery is faulty then there is always enough power to turn on dash lights but nothing left to run the high current solenoid and starter.

I have a 2001 dodge intrepid. new battery. new starter. Cleaned all connections. I hit the key and starter whines but does not engage?


First make sure that the new battery has plenty of charge, and isn't faulty.
The starter motor uses a solenoid to engage with the engine. If the starter is spinning, but doesn't connect, it may mean that the solenoid isn't receiving power, or that it is faulty. If you are confident with mechanics, you could take it out, run it unmounted. Then you could see clearly if the solenoid is engaging or not.

Installed new starter, and it won't engage, just spins up. I inherated the car, it had a new engine and clutch installed in 2009, and it has been a on going problem. thanks db.


If it just spins when you turn the key, either the Bendix gear is not kicking out the starter gear, or the flywheel/flexplate hs broken or missing teeth. Was the old starter 'shimmed'? If so, did you put the same number of shims back in when you installed the new one? It is possible your starter, even though it is new, is not working properly-rebuilt units can be defective out of the box.

My 99 Nissan Sentra will not start.new. I The car is not turning over at all.its making like a whining noise but not from a dead battier. best way i can describe it is free spinning What could the problem...


starter gear is not engaging the flexplate. solenoid mechanism should engage the gear. I think the starter and solenoid is sold together for this car, so this shoud fix it (about $140 for the part).
