SOURCE: 1998 corolla starter not engaging,I replaced the

1st thing is the battery 100% ??? try jumping it with another battery or car Poss to Poss and Earth to Earth.. and if still the same and the battery poles dont get warm then battery are ok ,,BUT CHECK it first
You say the starter motor is new and the starter ring is good but does it turn and the just spin and make a grinding noise if so the starter ring is worn at where it always stops which is about No1 cylinder
SO turn engine over by hand about 1/2 a turn and then try starting and if the starter turnes it over another 1/2 turn and stops again then the starter ring has to be replaced........ other wise you could have a big engine problem
BUT do all the above first and let me know how you go . Ron

SOURCE: I replaced the starter on

when the ignition switch is turned to the starting postion the motor should turn over if it dont then the starter is either not installed properly or the starter drive is sticking or bad if the starter is not engaging with the flywheel there could be a good chance that the teeth on the flywheel are broke off. i would pull the starter back off and use a mirror to check the teeth on the flywheel.

Well, the easiest solution is to pull the starter and bench test it. Likely areas for your issue is the starter drive, and flywheel teeth. You need to inspect the teeth of the flywheel.

one quick test would be to manually turn the engine to another location and fresh teeth on the flywheel, and try starting again. Engines tend to stop at some spots, and that can cause unusual wear on teeth in one small location.

Sometimes rebuilt starter do not get all new parts, but only what is failing, so it is possible to get a malfunctioning starter drive. Starter drive failure usually turns the engine over briefly, then the starter disengauges....

Starter not engaging


The starter solenoid mounted on top of the starter has two functions, as the key is operated the solenoid slides the starter pinion to engage the flywheel, THEN operates heavy duty contacts to power the motor. The solenoid is not engaging the pinion.1726daf9-e191-4168-8e99-cab63cae5995.gif

Won't crank over


The solenoid on the remanufactured starter may be defective. Also, sometimes it is necessary to shim a solenoid to get it to engage the ring gear properly.

I turn key and starter spin but will not engage flywheel.


You have one of two problems: Either the starter drive on your starter is defective and is not engaging the flywheel to crank the engine, or the flywheel has some broken or damaged teeth that are preventing the starter from engaging.
Starters come in a variety of designs. On some, the solenoid is mounted on top of the starter. When you turn the key, the solenoid routes current to the starter motor and at the same time pulls a lever that slides the drive gear mechanism out so it will engage the flywheel and crank the engine. If the solenoid is weak or damaged, it may not be strong enough to overcome the spring tension that retracts the drive gear. So the starter spins but doesn't crank the engine.
On other starters, the solenoid is mounted remotely. When the starter motor starts to spin, it ratchets out so the drive gear will engage the flywheel and crank the engine. If the drive mechanism is damaged or hung up, the motor may spin but not crank the engine.
Regardless of what type of starter you have, it will have to come out for further inspection. The drive gear (which is sometimes referred to as a "Bendix drive") should move out when the starter starts to spin. The drive gear usually has a one-way clutch that is supposed to protect the starter against damage if someone keeps cranking the engine once it starts. The gear should turn one way but not the other. If the gear is locked up or turns freely either way, the drive is bad and needs to be replaced. If the drive can't be replaced separately, you'll have to replace the entire starter.
Starter Testing If the drive seems okay, the starter should be "bench tested" using jumper cables or special equipment designed for this purpose.
CAUTION: Be careful because a starter develops a lot of torque. It should be held down with a strap or clamped in a vice (be careful not to crush or deform the housing!) before voltage is applied.
A simple no-load bench test can be performed with a battery and a pair of jumper cables to see if a starter motor will spin. But this test alone won't tell you if the starter is good or bad because a weak starter that lacks sufficient power to crank an engine at the proper speed (usually a minimum of 250 to 500 rpm) may still spin up to several thousand rpm when voltage is applied with no load.
A better method of determining a starter's condition is to have it tested on equipment that measures the starter's "amp draw." A good starter should normally draw a current of 60 to 150 amps, depending on the size or power rating of the starter. Some "high torque" GM starters may draw up to 250 amps, so refer to the OEM specifications to make sure the amp draw is within the acceptable range.
If the starter does not spin freely, or draws an unusually high or low number of amps, it is defective and replacement is required.
An unusually high current draw and low free turning speed typically indicate a shorted armature, grounded armature or field coils, or excessive friction within the starter itself (dirty, worn or binding bearings or bushings, a bent armature shaft or contact between the armature and field coils). The magnets in permanent magnet starters can sometimes break or separate from the housing and drag against the armature.
A starter that does not turn and draws a high current may have a ground in the terminal or field coils, or a frozen armature.
Failure to spin and zero current draw indicates an open field circuit, open armature coils, defective brushes or a defective solenoid.
Low free turning speed combined with a low current draw indicates high internal resistance (bad connections, bad brushes, open field coils or armature windings).

Starter makes a screeching noise sometimes just after the motor starts


Replace the starter before it ruins the flywheel. You have a worn out drive that applies to the flywheel. Flywheels are very very hard to change, in fact you can change 10 or 15 starters in the same time changing one flywheel

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.

INSTALLED NEW STARTER , SOUNDS LIKE ITS NOT FULLY ENGAGING FLYWHEEL


if the starter is making grinding sound it not! however it could be loos and needs to be bolted up tight or there may be a bad power joint to the starter,, check for this also check all the earth leads off the engine to the battery, if its still grinding then its likely to be a dud starter you fitted,, the solenoid is not fully engaging the starter bog in the fly wheel teeth and it stopping short and then it spins up this is whats making the grinding noise, it can also make a right mess of your fly wheel ring gear,, so dont leave it to long to get it sorted out,

When starter turns engine does not


Remove the starter shields and check the starter drive. Does it fly out when the starter is engaged? Check the flywheel for ring gear damage from the starter. Check the flywheel for breakage at the crankshaft, try to turn the engine using the flywheel with a screw driver.

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.
