2003 toyota camry 4cyl.engine doesnt turn over but starter does.starter ck. and is ok , just makes starter whining noise


if starter motor runs (hear it??) but doesn't turn engine , then it needs to be replaced also at same time , the gear it contacts with on flywheel edge ,needs to be visually inspected (easy with starter removed) for any missing or bent teeth , as a engine this old is bound to have some worn or missing teeth, if gear is missing teeth or are very worn (teeth looks like a shark fin with hook to them) then engine and transmission will need to be separated to be replace the gear , most shops will just remove engine to allow for this , but this isn't always nessacary

Is there some sort of relay for the starter gear to catch on flywheel?


On top of your starter is a "solenoid", which does two jobs:
1. it's the starter relay,
and
2. it engages the pinion gear on the starter with the flywheel.
There is a "bendix spring" that retracts the gear when you stop cranking. The gear can get stuck on the shaft, and the starter will just spin....

What would be the problem with our toyota 4runner starter motor that when we turn the key the starter motor just makes a grinding noise, is it the starter motor or something else??


The grinding noise is the starter hitting the fly wheel. This means that the starter is spinning but may not be engaging all the way. Your Flywheel is probably missing a few teeth now. I recommend replacing starter and flywheel. If you're on a tight budget then you could just replace the starter but it will cost you more in the long run.

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.

Put new starter in 96 nisson a week ago now its real hard starting (grinding,not catching) i can get it to start but something wrong does it need to be shimed thank you


If it is making the noise I think it is, the problem is with the flywheel. The teeth on the flywheel wear out and when the starter goes to engage, it doesn't quite fully engage into the flywheel teeth and a makes a loud, sharp grinding noise, like you tried to start a running engine. What you can do is remove the starter and look inside at the flywheel. Make a mark, paint dot or crayon, and turn the flywheel with a screwdriver. If there are damaged teeth, and I suspect there are, they will be very evident. If that is the case, you will need to replace the starter (new starter will likely be damaged from your efforts to start your vehicle) and flywheel.
