SOURCE: grinding

It could be the flywheel, but try putting different size shims in between the starter and engine.The starter might be a little to tight against the flywheel. You should be able to get the starter shims at any auto parts store, or ask where you can get some.

The fly wheel gets stuck, but the engine is not siezed. Can removing the spark plugs and spinning the fly wheel fix the problem?


I think i understand what you are saying Mary. The flywheel is a gear with teeth that is bolted to the crankshaft. The starter engages the teeth on the flywheel to start the vehicle. If the flywheel has a worn spot on it where the teeth are broken. The starter wont turn over the engine and start the car. Putting a wrench on the camshaft pulley and advancing the the flywheel turning the bolt in the normal rotating direction . Should move the gear to a good spot where the starter will engage it. but the next time the car is turned off and the gear falls in the same position the same problem will result. If this the actual problem the only way to fix the problem is to replace the worn flywheel.

Where is the starting motor in Nissan xterra2000?


the starter on most vehicles is bolted to the bell housing of the gearbox, thats the bit that covers the fly wheel, when the starter spins it shoots out and turns the fly wheel , (cranking the engine)
start by finding the bell housing, also the starter has a direct feed from your battery try following the cables back , remember to disconnect the terminals first , dont want any electric shocks !! hope this helps

My starter spins but but doesn't engage the fly wheel. Solenoid or starter?


starter, take out and try across battery and it should whirr and jump out as if connecting with flywheel, if no spray the whole starter with WD40 inside and leave overnight. worked for me.

Battery is good but when I turn it on it just clicks won't start,maybe after 20 times it starts


Without hearing the sound it makes - it's kind of hard to diagnose.

The engine starting process consists of turning the key to start, the starter motor's rotor moving forward to engage the engine's flywheel, and then the starter motor 's "rotor" spinning until you move the key from "start" to "run". You can hear the starter motor spinning - but one usually can't hear the rotor moving forward to engage the flywheel. As a result, you hear the odd spinning sound - which is the starter rotor spinning. The engine never actually turns over because the rotor never engages the fly wheel. If this is the case, then it is very likely that your starter needs to be checked and / or replaced.

Good luck!

PULLY SYSTEM WONT SPIN WHEN I CRANK THE ENGINE


Yes, most dealers have the equipment to cut by VIN. Be sure to call ahead and confirm and also determine what proof of ownership they will require. For obvious reasons they have to be careful when providing this service.

Car starts but sometimes makes a whirling noise. I was told it was the starter


sounds like the starter is not disengaging the fly wheel quickly like it should when you turn the key the starter cog connects upto a fly wheel that has teeth all around it when the teeth of starter cog connect between teen on wheel it spins it to crank your car then goes back to starter if you hold your key on after starting the noise you hear is the starter cog(teeth ) still engaged in wheel if this is the sound it needs to be serviced not neccassarily replaced
