I hope you still have the other starter .. If so compare them very close and see if there is a difference in them .. There is sometimes just enough difference in them that will cause this problem .. You will have to go back to the parts store and have them take them out of the box till you get the exact one that is for your engine.. Make sure both starters have same amount of teeth on the bendix .. This I believe is where the problem is .. thanks and holler if i can help more Jerry

Toyota t100 1998 flywheel cracks what is making it crack this is the third time. what else can i check?


Possible that the flywheel alignment is not set correctly or there is an issue with the starter motor pinion or settings.
It is important that the starter is removed and the settings of the flywheel meshing with the pinion is checked out. It can be an issue here that can crack the flywheel.
if not the engine alignment or is there is a bearing fault on the engine crank must be checked.

My Jeep cherokee not starting after removal of flywheel. Is there a specific way to install the flywheel?


The teeth on the flywheel need to be close enough for the starter motor to catch them when it engages. If you removed it and now the starter just free-spins when starting then you may have installed the flywheel backwards and the starter motor cannot reach the teeth on the flywheel. If its making a loud grinding or pinging sound you may need to manually turn the engine a bit to align the flywheel.

Starter vs flywheel- My Nissan 200sx is obviously grinding starter with flywheel, after a min or two of attempts it starts, it starts quicker when warm. Is there a way to determine if the flywheel is bad...


It sounds like the starter is not engaging fully and you should change the starter.When you remove the starter check the flywheel\flex plate(Flexplate for automatic trany) for damage.

My starter teeth all broke off any reasons


Drive may have been engaged when engine running, like as in accidentally forgetting it was already running, or drive was sticky & stayed engaged after start up. If this is first time it's happened, I wouldn't panic, but observe flywheel/ring gear teeth when you change starter. Check for good alignment when installing new one, just to be sure. Any odd noises from starter prior to this happening?

Engine wont engage


recheck the starter alignment and make sure the starter mounting bolts have been tightned. If that doesn't do it I would be checking to make sure the starter bendix andthe flywheel teeth are the same, since you have just changed engines.

well you picked one of the easy ones all you have is a couple of mounting bolts (depending on what engine you have) and one battery cable . just pull the bolts out and remove the starter. some times you need a pry bar to break it loose but make sue you have the bolts removed first.
good luck
