I am thinking you have what is called a poling armature from worn bushes . It is repairable . Have the armature checked out as well and fit new brushes for a good job.

Hi
Replace the copper contacts inside the starter motor, it connects the current to the rotor once the bendix drive gear is engaged with the ring gear.

Wont start


Do you mean the starter motor runs but the engine will not crank? If so the problem is at you starter there is a small gear that makes the conection between the starter motor and the engine. Some times you can tap the starter with a hammer while someone try's to start it and it will loosen the gear and start. if this works change the starter.

88 rx7 run but wont start


The FC3S is notorious for this and fueling issues. Check all ground points, battery cables and connections. Check the draw from the starter. If the voltage drops below 10V there is not enough power for the ignition, causing weak spark. It really needs to spin over 200rpm cranking. Pop starting does not necessarily mean the compression is good. You need to make sure it cranks fast enough to get a proper compression test with rotary tester, New NGK plugs, new NGK plug wires.

Car won't start. It turns over and clicks fast, but nothing. Dad says it may be the starter, but I don't know where the starter is to tap it to see. Can you help?


Right side, down under. You say it turns over? if it turns over, the starter is working. Turning over and cranking are the same thing. It either CRANKS or it DOES NOT CRANK. or it CRANKS but wont RUN. Explain things in these terms so theres no confusion.

300ZX wont start, or crank for nothing


The car seems to have functioning parts but it is probably a wiring issue - have you done a heater core replacement or anything under the dash/hood in a while (other than "tapping on the starter" <-- which you shouldnt do by the way)

what year is it??

if it is a 1990 the car has a plug undone under the driver side steering column on the "security" and "ignition" wiring circuit - read your FSM (factory service manual) and diagnose the problem. it is definately a short somewhere!

Won't start


That clicking you hear is the starter solenoid. There are two reasons for this, one is not enough power to crank the starter, but it looks like you have ruled out that possibilty. The other is the starter and/or solenoid are going bad. Although sometimes your starter can develop flat spots and prevent starting, If you are handy and can locate the starter, try tapping on it with a rubber mallet then try starting the car.(I've started alot cars w/ starter problems this way) If it starts then it's definatly your starter and it needs to be replaced. Flat spots occur from overcranking which cause's alot of heats, can also be caused by cranking when engine is already running. Anyway here's a few tips and I hope this helps
