Might need to put shims between the starter and the block. Lots of Chevys require them.

SOURCE: 1999 chevy blazer won't start

First of all make sure all your battery connections are Clean and Tight. If they are and all your dash lights come on and its not starting But its cranking over Your anti theft alarm may have gotten activated. You may have to leave your Key in the On position for 20 minutes to reset the alarm. Not cranking just in the on position, Now if its not Cranking and your hearing a clicking sound it may be your starter. I have sometimes tapped on the stater with a deadblow hammer and had someone crank it over Making sure your in park foot on brake and being EXTREMLY Carefull that you are not going to run someone over. If that don't get you going Get back to me we can do some more trouble shooting. Get that thing going for you. Thanks, Bear001

SOURCE: clicking noise when trying to start car,battery is ok, wont start

That Clicking is the Battery causing it not to Start. You need to Replace that Battery or at Least put a Charger on it for a Couple of hours to see if you can Salvage it for a While.

SOURCE: 02 Chevy Cavalier - Fast Clicking Noise When I Turn Key

if you recently replaced the battery and are continuing to have this issue, i suggest that you clean the battery terminals.

obviously your car is getting power (fast clicking indicates this) so you will need a good battery jump. also check your cables, sometimes your cables may not supply sufficient power for the recharge

SOURCE: Noise in Reverse

Transfer case would only be if you are in 4 wheel drive. this sounds like a rear end or u joint issues. Get under the truck and grab the drive line, if you are able to turn it more then a 1/4 inch each way bad u joints. If not then check the rear end.

Hi there, i am in desperate need of help. My starter went out 3 weeks ago, bought a new one, and had it replaced. Still didnt turn on but had a mechanic fix it by unlocking something that got stuck on the...


Without being able to hear the sound it's hard to point you in the right direction without more details. My first assumption from what you've described would be that the noise is present only while cranking/initial starting. If this is so, there are a few possible reasons for this. 1. The starter that was put is is faulty. 2. The starter was incorrectly installed. (Some starters actually have an alignment and/or shims although it's uncommon on most cars.) 3. The starter that was installed was the incorrect starter for your vehicle. (A lot of vehicles have different starters for automatic and manual transmissions that'll look identical and bolt on but the throw of the starter gear is different and/or the gear's teeth on the starter is different and doesn't properly mesh with the ring gear. This will ruin the teeth on the ring gear on your flex plate/flywheel.) 4. The teeth on the ring gear of your flex plate/flywheel were previously worn because of your old starter and now the teeh on the starter gear are not properly meshing. (This will ruin any starter that you put in.)

Hope this helps. If you can provide any more information, I'd be happy to help you to further narrow down the problem. e.g. Year, make, model, engine size, transmission type of the vehicle and part number of the starter installed. A better description of the noise and conditions of occurrence. e.g. A rough grinding noise while holding the key in the start position followed by a hollow metallic pinging noise or prolonged whining. Etc.

Ford f250 5.4engine seized


Sounds like "timing chain" issues. If this is a 2004-2008 vehicle(V-8) there were parts called "Cam Phasers" on DOHC engines that were a problem. Use the term "Cam Phasers" with a Websearch and see if this applies to you.

There are different approaches to fixing this. This "clang" is concerning. To start, drain the oil and see if there are metal chips or shavings coming out with the oil. If yes, just pull the engine and then break down the engine. If no metal shavings, you may only need to remove the front half of the motor to investigate the timing chain. Or remove the valve covers to see if one of the two camshafts snapped.

You might try using a breaker bar and grab the crankshaft bolt and turn the crankshaft the opposite way to see if the engine will free up or the bolt unscrews.

Hi I just replaced the starter motor on my peugeot 206 and it is making strange noises when the engine is turning over and not starting the car. I removed the old one first so that it could be matched


Did you compare the length of the starter drive shaft of the new and old? Sounds like the armature is to long and not disconnecting when released...older models sometimes require shims to correctly set the length...

Clanging noise while running


A rhythmic metal on metal noise in an engine usually follows a classic rule: valves tap and pistons knock. If the noise is rhythmic with the speed of the engine and incrementally increases when the engine speeds up, then it is one of these two issues. All you need to answer in this case is whether your noise is a tap or a knock. On the other hand, if the clanging sounds more like an old diesel engine and increases in volume when the engine accelerates, then the problem is pre-ignition. If the problem is simply pre-ignition, then you will need to check your ignition system, including the knock sensor, crank sensor, and all your spark plugs and coils. This is the simplest thing to do first. Unplug each coil one at a time to verify that the engine loses power for each one. Valve tap can be caused by lifters or a broken valve spring. To diagnose this, you need to remove the valve cover and check the lifters. Are any loose when you try to move them up and down by hand? Engine knock signals that your engine needs to be rebuilt with new piston rods and bearings. It is not a good idea to drive very long with either condition or you could end up causing more damage and get stuck on the side of the road.

Why is my 1987 300e Mercedes making a loud clanging noise at start up?


I would think the honeycomb ceramic "Brick" inside the Catalytic Converter has broken up, makes a terrible rattling when this happens.

Jeep wranger, clanging from front end when turning


Probably the CV joints just behind the brakes on each wheel. Try jacking the car up so that the wheel on that side is clear of the ground, grasp the wheel and rotate it back and forth. Do you get that noise? The joints are not repairable, just replace both sides.
