Make sure starter is still tight to block,if so probably Bendix failure or fly wheel teeth.If flywheel you can turn crank slightly ! or 2 inches and starter will be able to engage.

Is there some sort of relay for the starter gear to catch on flywheel?


On top of your starter is a "solenoid", which does two jobs:
1. it's the starter relay,
and
2. it engages the pinion gear on the starter with the flywheel.
There is a "bendix spring" that retracts the gear when you stop cranking. The gear can get stuck on the shaft, and the starter will just spin....

When I turn my ignition to start my 87 ford ranger the starter spins but doesn't catch the flywheel. I replaced the solenoid and checked the grounds but it still does the same thing. I just replaced...


If you have tested the starter, and it is installed correctly, and it spins, my guess would be missing teeth on the flywheel.
A Ford starter needs 11 volts to engage so you could check to make sure you have that at the starter cable post.
You could also turn the crank a few degrees to see if the flywheel is warped or damaged.

Your alternator is not charging the Battery, I would replace the battery with a new gel battery and have the alternator checked, bets on your battery just died.

I went out to move my 2005 cavalier and when I shifted from reverse to drive, it slipped right thru everything and wouldn't catch. It wouldn't even catch in park. I pulled the parking break and...


I don't know beans about automatice transmissions and the average person can only check the fluid levels and take it to a transmission shop if it is more serious.
As far as the engine goes, you need to localize the problem because with the other indications it might not be the normal stuff. So, what I would recommend is that you take the serpentine belt off and try to turn the crank with a large wrench (CW only) with the car in neutral. If you can turn it, then it is probably not your engine freezing up. If it won't turn then the transmission is probably not disengaging from the flywheel - maybe the torque converter.

If it does turn over, then you can put the belt back on and try to jump start the car with another vehicle or the boost function on a battery charger. It it starts then you know to look at the charging system - battery, alternator. If it doesn't start then the starter or the starter reley.

1995 mercedes e320 does not start. The engine does not catch.


1- If engine is not cranking but hearing a click then

a- Problem with battery.

Try to jump start then if battery is over 5 years, replace battery

b- Solenoid works but not the starter.

Need to repalce the starter.

2- If engine is cranking but not catching on, then the problem is with the Bendix part. it is an intergrated part of the starter.

Replace the starter.

Starter not catching flywheel


the starter is either not engaging or the bendix is shot. Bendix is the gear assembly that slides on the starter shaft. it should spin free in one direction and turn the starter in the other. and slide freely on the splines (in/out)
