Usually people just replace the starter and not just components to it. You would probably be a lot further ahead replacing the starter.

Engine start Bendix still engaged put into any gear Bendix disengages can go back to park there will be no more problem


if your saying your starter stays engaged after starting engine till you cycle thru the gears , your starter needs serviced , most likely a worn bendix pivot bushing

two options 4 repair
1= replace starter
2= remove starter and have it professionally rebuilt then reinstall it

How do you replace starter bendix


The starter bendix is serviced with the starter motor assembly for your vehicle. I seriously doubt if you can purchase just a bendix for your starter. Hardly any parts stores carry these any more. Back in the day, you could disassemble the starter motor assembly and replace just the bendix if that was all you needed. However, remanufactured starters have become so economical that this method of repair is no longer worth the effort.

Starter turns but wont engage engine?


Sounds like the Bendix... You might ought to pull the starter and look at the teeth on both the bendix of the starter and the flywheel. If the teeth on both are in good shape...then its probably a weak starter not throwing the bendix out to turn the flywheel. But...if the teeth are **** up on the bendix...its cheaper tp replace it. Make sure Battery is in good condition as well. Both battery AND starter can be tested at your local AutoZone... Hope this helps...

88F250 4x4 5.8L FI 5 speed. A friend has this & the starter went out. I replaced it & the solenoid. No big deal right? I returned it & the next day he called me & told me that the...


Its a solenoid...it engages the bendix and truck starts...bendix should retract because power to it gets shut off by ignition switch going to "run".

Only way bendix would stay engaged or get a signal to keep turning ???
Bad contacts in ignition switch...maybe ??
Start relay in under hood power distribution panel has hot or welded contacts ?

I've gotta think about this one...hope this gives some help...

Starter spins but will not engage


this could be a few problems that cause this,

1. your battery could be weak and not have enough juice to engage the starter solenoid

2. the bendix could be messed up

3. this is probaly the most common problem, the starter solenoid went out

the best course of action would be to have your battery load tested, and if its fine, replace the starter

The car clicks but won't turn over. The battery is good and the starter is good.


If battery and starter are good and it cllicks one each time you turn the switch, the starter relay / solenoid is malfunctioining.

More info, let me know.

Starter is broken. makes a loud csfscscshh sound instead of starting?


Make sure to check the flywheel when you remove the starter there may be flywheel damage and that would cause the same problem.
