If they will not turn in either direction, your engine is seized.
If it turns in one direction then stops you have an obstruction either inside the engine (catastrophic) or between the engine and transmission (such as loose flywheel bolts) stopping the engine from turning.

SOURCE: Got a new starter but it stilll won't run.

Yes the transmission has to come out to replace the flywheel. An depending on how nice the shop will be to you, the labor hours can be 4 to 6 billable hours plus parts. What ever the going shop rate is where you live. 90$ + per hour. It mre than likely has damaged teeth on the ring gear. The factory had a spacer/shim around the nose of the starter. Did you have to deal with that when you replaced the starter> They very often don't get reinstalled and are a bit of a pain to get into place properly. Without the shim the spacing would not be proper and possibly cause premature wear to starter and or Ring Gear.

SOURCE: all comes on when key

Does the car have a factory security system? it may have a starter kill on it.
also check for voltage at the starter solenoid while someone holds the key to start position, you could have a faulty ignition switch.
the engine light stays on when the key is on until engine starts.

My 2004 Accent wont start. It started fine Tuesday, Wednesday morning it would not start for nothing. I tried it Thursday afternoon and it started fine. This is the second time it has done this.

Does the motor crank (starter engaged and turning the motor)? If it does not crank, do you hear the solenoid clicking (engaging the starter gear into the flywheel teeth)?

I have a crown vic 1998 my car was driving fine i was going to go to the store my car didnt turn on i open my hood i try to turn it on all i hear was i think the starter but the crazy thing is the band...

So you think you could hear the starter spin but the "band" did not turn? I suppose you mean the serpentine belt did not turn. It is quite possible for the starter to spin but the bendix to fail to engage the flywheel. This can be caused by low battery charge, bad battery connections, or more commonly, a bad starter.

Blazer will not start have gas battery is fine

If I understand you right, it sounds like the starter solenoid went bad and could possibly work again when the engine cooled down. The other scenario is that the ignition switch is bad (on steering column) or the neutral safety switch located on the transmission side. A real fluke would be that the starter BOLTS CAME LOOSE AND JAMMED THE STARTER, IF THIS IS THE CASE LOOSEN STARTER BOLTS, WIGGLE STARTER THEN TIGHTEN BOLTS TO SPECS. 25268178-sbjsv11dlntqjzkc4qi5qeet-5-0.gif

Engine will not turn over

Try turning the engine manually . this can be done off the front of the crank shaft bolt i think it is a 15/16 hex bolt if you can not turn it the engine main bearings are seized to the crank shaft if it turns then a voltage drop test needs to be done.

Starter works fine but won't crank engine. the pick up has to be given a push first before it starts

If the starter is spinning when you try to start but doesn't spin the engine over then you most likely have teeth missing off the flywheel ring gear. The facts that you say you have to push it and then it starts means the flywheel position changes and the starter has good teeth on the flywheel to engage. To confirm this next time the engine won't crank over remove the starter and look inside at the flywheel for missing flywheel teeth.

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.

When I try starting the car, it makes a fast ticking noise....the batery is good cause everything turns on with it but when I ignite, it ticks. Is it the starter?

THat is the starter my friend but why dont u try to jump start the car and see if this helps. That most likely sounds like a bad battery to me. As you are hearing the starter still is trying to go but doesn't have enough power to kick its gear into the flywheel.
