The trans converter is empty or laying on a slant inside the bell mount of the transmission and if it's rear wheel drive then it could be the driveshaft is put on incorrectly or the differentail isn't any good but it could be simple as the gear linkage is broke or disconnected

Have a 2002 yamahaout board the starter bendix spends but don't get to flywheel.haddtarter checked sad it wasstrong. It's a 115hp


some outboards use a spiral gear on starter bendix to engauge the flywheel , this needs to move freely on starter shaft (moves up to engage flywheel) now if say rust happens on this shaft (and it does lots!!) then this gear can not move up to engauge wheel and shaft just spins !! me id try a few squirts of oil right down in there !!

Worn teeth on flywheel


Worn teeth on a flywheel are usually a result of a starter problem such as a drive or the starter not lined up properly or loose causing the starter driver gear to mismatch with the teeth on the ring gear. This eventually wears the teeth on the flywheel away. Transmission will have to be unbolted and moved back for enough room to work or completely taken out. The flywheel will need to be replaced or you can get a new ring gear cut the old one off , weld the new one on then balance it. Best just to get a new one unless you have a real shop. LOL Nowadays most mechanics just get a new one, less hassle and quicker plus I don't think half of these yahoos would know how to properly replace the ring gear anyway. Check your starter for damage also.

Starter motor or fly wheel problem


The starter is not engaging with the flywheel, sounds like teeth missing on starter ring gear, when you move the car in gear, you are turning the engine, so repositioning the ring gear and then it starts. The starter needs to come off and inspect the gear on the pinion and you should be able to see the ring gear through the starter mounting hole, (you will have to turn engine to see all of it). If it is a worn ring gear, it's gearbox out and a new flywheel. Good Luck.

1965 mustang starter fires but won't engage flywheel. it is a brand new starter


Doesn't matter. The forks inside the starter may be missing or broke off or bad spring in starter that pushes the gear out. Try new started. Starter may have to be shimmed to make contact with flywheel. Starter may be kicking out but not engaging flywheel.

2003 Dodge Neon won't start, try to jump start it


check for the starter motor but I suspect a flywheel gear worn. By removing the starter motor would be easier to check the flywheel gear.

2003 Lincoln Navigator starter grinding when starting


If you mean the starter grinds from time to time and won't crank the engine when it happens, the problem could be a bad spot on the flywheel and/or a faulty starter. The starter uses a magnet and bendix gear to push the starter gear into the flywheel. If the magnet or bendix is weak, the gear will not engage and can damage the teeth on the flywheel.
You need to have the starter removed and check the flywheel teeth for damage.

2006 jeep wrangler automatic transmission drifts in park


I can't imagine how the drifting in park and the starter won't crank the engine could be related.
It is possible something happened to the flywheel and it is not now connected to the crankshaft, or the bendix gear on the starter is not engaging the flywheel.
But the transmission has a pawl or gear that locks the output shaft of the transmission when the shifter is in park. That gear could be damaged and would allow the truck to roll in park.
And the parking gear would not have anything to do with the starter issue.
I think I would check to see if the flywheel is connected to the crankshaft first.
Is the truck still under warranty ??

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.
