My Hyundai matrix can't start power is out of the fuel pump line, this happened after changing the front shaft and all fuse are OK. Please help.


Check your Starter.

You may have disconnected while working front shaft.

Run a Black Cable from Negative of Battery to Negative of Starter.
Then Red Cable from Positive of Battery to Positive of Starter.
Be very careful when doing this, the Starter will turn as soon as you make contact.

It's best to use a DVM to measure contacts.

OK I need help I just rebuilt my 1976 Chevy 350 after the first start up I am getting grinding sounds from the inside my motor while its running can anyone tell me why please help


the only things that are rotating to give a grinding sound are
the crankshaft, cam shaft and starter motor
for the crankshaft it could be slipper bearings too tight and are now spinning in the caps, missing thrust bearing halves on the crank shaft
on the cam shaft -bolts behind the cam gear touching on the back of the gear
oil thrower disc in wrong and the edge is running on the cover of the timing chain housing
starter motor not in correctly and jamming the pinion in the ring gear while the motor is running( some 350 motors have a shim adjustment for the starter housing to block
It is difficult to say exactly but if you followed the workshop manual to the letter you will know what you missed

When i try to start the engine it won't start, but the starter keeps running.


Yes starter is spinning but it has to be engaged.Its not engaging.The problem is with starter system.Get the flywheel checked.
Its suggested to get the starter system removed and checked. If all checked ok,then it can be fuel or ignition issue.

Car stopped running now wont start


No start problem.This is many a times caused by weak battery or faulty battery, or can be possible that battery to starter connection is loose or faulty starter itself.First the battery to start and both battery and starter voltage needs to be checked and confirmed.If that is checked ok, then other possibilities like faulty spark plugs,m faulty fuel pump etc etc needs to be checked.

Where do I spray the starter fluidin a 96 dodge caravan


The starter fluid needs to be sprayed on the throttle body.This is done for testing the car with starter fluid.If it runs by spraying starter fluid,then most probably the fuel pump is the problem.
If you notice no start problem on your car/.Then there are many other possibilities too.

Car was running but shutdown after ten minutes


IF your car is NOT overheating (temp gauges are normal) and the vehicle will not start when the motor has warmed up there are two potential problems that are common. If the car won't run right or start right when warm, but does so when cold, look for a failing cam position sensor. If the car starter won't turn over correctly when the motor is warmed up, but does so when cold, suspect a failing bushing that holds the starter shaft in line. A starter repair is needed to fix that. I hop this is helpful. More details about what you have tried would help the community at Fixya to troubleshoot your issue.

When I start the car the starter does not disengadge even when the key is turned off.


You either have a bad starter solenoid or starter. There is a twisted spiral drive on the starter rotor shaft that usually allows the stater bendix to disengage and drop back down to the recessed position. If the starter arature shaft twisted spline is worn or there is something wrong with the solenoid the contacts on the solenoid stay engaged so the starter runs continuously.

Take a look at this link because removing or changing this starter is a bigger than usual task:

http://www.2carpros.com/forum/1997-isuzu-rodeo-question-starter-vt391872.html

Make sure to scroll down and see what must be removed to gain access to the starter.

This is not your average everyday starter as it has an offset drive and they more expensive. I do recommend using a remanufactured starter.

Just so you can see what the starter looks like see this link for your model year:

http://www.autopartswarehouse.com/mmp/isuzu~rodeo~starter~parts.html

(I think you can get a better price closer to home at NAPA or AutoZone)

Thanks for choosing FixYa.
