Not engaging? does that mean not firing? if this is what you mean, your coil may need to be replaced. the coil has all the sparkplug wires connected to it.

Everything works on the car but the starter wont engage and i just bought a new starter and battery


Take the starter back out but leave it connected. If it doesn't use a ground wire, make up a heavy wire and use that for ground.
When you hit the key, watch to see if the starter gear moves forward to engage an doesn't just spin. (it engages the flywheel when in place.) The engine isn't supposed to fire if it's not turning.

Starter just spins after ignition wire replaces - no fire


Sounds like you have the starter wires hooked up wrong and to continuous power. If starter shuts off with the key now, but wont engage the motor, you may need shims so that the starter drive lines up with the motors fly wheel

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.

86 Chevy Suburban not starting.


Is the starter actually turning the engine over (engaging), or is it just whirring rapidly? If it is not engaging, then the vehicle certainly will not start. If it is not engaging, there is most likely a shimming issue to be addressed to get the starter to engage. If it is engaging, check carefully the large nut in the starter solenoid. There are usually more than one wire attached to this nut. Ensure that you have not missed replacing any of the wires that came off the starter studs. Some feed back to the fuse paqnel and can be critical for operation.

The engine dies if I don't keep the ignition turned forward. Any ideas?


Pull the distributor cap off and watch the rotor as you crank the motor. If the rotor doesn't turn your timing belt is broken. If the Engine is actually firing while you have the starter engaged but dies immediately when you let off even when you press the accelerator check to make sure the starter isn't staying engaged in the flywheel as that will kill the motor and burn your starter out. If all is good so far do a compression check. If you don't have good compression on all cylinders your engine maybe firing but with no compression will not run.

Starter not engaging


it sounds as though the starter motor is on the way out. to confirm this, you need to have the started in a fail situation and place a test light on the signal wire of the starter. if it illuminates, your starter is bad.

Fire from coil no fire from plug wire rotor not turning


If the engine spins faster than normal, it's likely you have a broken timing belt or timing chain failure.
