I think what you are describing is the starter gear spinning when you turn the key to start, but the starter gear is not advancing on the shaft to engage with the flywheel to crank the engine over. Did you replace the starter and solenoid (they usually are sold as a unit), or did you just change the starter and use the old solenoid? The solenoid powers the battery to the starter, and advances the gear on the starter shaft, so if you used the old solenoid, replace it and it should work.

Hear a clunk sound when trying to start


A clunk noise could be a couple of things. Your starter may be starting to go bad. If the flywheel or starter has broken a tooth on the gear, it will clunk. A loose starter, check the bolts. Good luck

Turn key all light come on as a normal start. but when key is turned nothing happens. no noise nothing.. keep trying and eventully starts.Sometimes 3 or 4 times.. Sometimes 10 min. later. it can be days...


You didnt list the type of car this is, the most common thing that causes this is the starter, i just had a saturn, the customer had the same problem we told her it may be the starter but cant be 100% sure until it actted up, she didnt want to replace it unless we were sure, so we kept and drove the car around for 5 days and finally the last day it didnt start and it was the starter , same problem turn key and nothing no noise and no start, i would have the starter replaced and go from there, its a mater of time before the car just wont start,hope this is helpful.

Try to start it and it clicks a few times and usually starts but last night didn't. Is it my starter or something else?


Hi if the clicking noise you hear is coming from the bottom of the engine then this indicates the problem is with the starter, you can try hitting it with a hammer a couple of times (the starter that is not the car) this should get it starting if you need to use it.

once the starter has been replaced you will have no problems starting the car.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

plz could you rate this post as i have loads of unrated posts
thanks

Make sure you have bled all the air out of system.

Start bleeding from the furthest wheel first and work your way to the closes to master cylinder last,
You have everything else covered.

1996 honda accord LX wont start came home fine last night. Just morning wont start. everything comes on lights, horn blows.... only a clicking noise when trying to start. Notice that battery cable was...


Try smacking the starter with a blunt object ( hammer or something ) Smack it several times while cranking. It may free up. Listen for the click at the starter. Its prabably a bad starter. Common symptom your describing. If it does start replace the starter.

2000 olds intrigue will not crank


you have 3 choices.
1) Bad battery
2)Starter motor solenoid is inoperative or starter motor itself is inoperative
3) your engine is locked up
How old is your battery and are the connections to the starter motor good?
Do you hear a clicking noise when you try to start the engine?
Do you have a clunk noise when you try to start it?

If dirty connections then clean the terminals andtry to start engine.
Clicking noise means starter solenoid is picking up but starter motor is disunctional and needs replacement.
If the noise is a clunk then your engine is locked up for whatever reason.
Last but not least if you hear the starter motor runningand a metalic grinding then the star is bad on the starter motor which means replacement of same.

Starting problems


if this problem persists then you could check a few things on it, like on the times when its not even making a noise when trying to turn the key, use rubber/wooden object and tap the starter motor but not touching the contacts on the back. if this amkes it spring into life then it will be your starter motor if this does nothing then it will be a dodgy battery supply. does it also make like a screaching noise while trying to start? if so then definitely your starter motor

Problem with ignition switch, starter, flywheel


that sounds correct what happens is the starter still tries to engage the flywheel and grinds the teeth off both. Replace switch then worry about starter flywheel if it starts fine don't worry about it you may have saved it if you didn't let it run that way long

Remove the starter & inspect the contacts inside the starter solenoid housing. If they are burnt and/or worn, you will get this condition. Replace the contacts and the plunger, or replace the starter. I change contacts in my shop 3-4 times a week. Quite a common failure. The clicking noise is the plunger hitting one contact, but not the other, due to wear.

Starter


you can replace the cylinoid,but I prefer to change the whole thing specially that it seems like starter drag when you buy the new starter the cylinoid will be built on the new starter,if you change the cylinoid itself,and you still need a starter youll have to buy the starter and cylinoid as one unit,and they wont take the cylinoid back that you broke,but either way I would pull the starter and bring it down to an autozone and have it checked for free,if this helps please give me a fix ya
