Have you had the fly wheel checked when the starter was out they weer a problem on some models with the teeth wearing down on the fly wheel, you would nee the motor out and the plugs an look in the hole were the starter fits and have some one turn the engine by the crank bolt. to check all the cog.

Sounds like it is not toughing 100% and making full gear contact with the fly-wheel. Replace starter or the misalignment can burr the flywheel causing rounding and subsequent damage to the device.

Ignition switch is a good place to start, you may want to check the starter itself (PIA to pull and test because of its location), or you can always take it to autozone and have them run an electrical diagnostic (most of them do it for free and it takes 2 minutes), if that checks out, you can be assured it's either the ignition or wiring. Keep us up to date, and good luck.

92 subaru loyal wont turn over and makes humming nouise in cab


If the starter does not engage you will hear the "growling" in the cab which is usually the fuel pump and is a normal noise, more apparent because of the lack of engine noise. First thing to check is the wiring to the starter under the hood. If it is ok could be contacts in the starter solenoid , starter brushes or a"dead" starter. I would try tapping the starter with a SMALL hammer or the end of a I/2 inch breaker bar while having an assistant turn the key to attempt starting. Stand on driver's side, If spare is mounted under hood, remove spare. The starter is visible and can be tapped from there.

I INSTALLED ASTARTER IN 92 CHEV PU WORKS OK BUT AT FIRST GET GRINDING GEAR NOISE.


Sometimes the starter needs a shim installed to help this problem. If there was not a grinding noise with old starter you should be able to install a shim,these shims you can get at your auto parts store. they come in several thicknesses, most times you get 2 or 3 different thicknesses in a pack. Start with the thinner one and loosen the two starter bolts 3 to 4 turns then remove bolt furthest from engine , shim will slide in and slot at end should stradle bolt, align hole at other end and install other bolt and retighten bolts. test starter for noise,if noise is gone your done, if not try next thicker shim till noise is gone sometimes damage to the teeth on the flywheel can cause this noise but try the shims first. Good Luck!

On my 99 beetle the engine rotates but wont start and when you stop turning the key the engine whines would this be a starter problem?


Could very well be a starter problem, but I typically suggest that one should check out the condition of the battery (may not be throwing sufficient amps to crank the starter), and then the alternator to make certain the alternator is providing enough amps to fully charge the battery.

Sounds like the starter is actually turning, just not fully engaging. when a starter dies 6 out of 10 times it's a bad selenoid (causing a loud clicking sound instead of the starter engaging). Doesn't sound like your immediate problem.

Try jump starting the Beetle. If it starts that was it's probably a battery or alternator issue. If your successful in getting the car started your local autoparts store (AutoZone, Advance Auto or O'Reillys) can test your battery and alternator for Free. Call before you go to make certain that their testing equipment is functioning.

Will 205/75r14 tires fit on a 1992 subaru legacy?


Yes they should, you'll just have a slightly taller side wall. But if you want to be sure, just call a local tire store and they should be able to tell as well.
