Can't get my truck to start

If the starter turns but not the engine several things could be going on. The most likely is the Bendix mechanism in the starter. The Bendix spins out and engages the flywheel when the starter turns and then a spring pulls the mechanism back to disengage. If it is inoperable you will get the symptoms you describe. Another possibility (and more likely) is a bad ground for the starter so that it does not get enough amps to spin fast enough to engage the Bendix. You can everything correct electrically and the ground will get you. I would have an electrical shop look at it.

Starter relay ground

Usually if the starter spins but does not engage the flywheel, the problem is the flywheel or the bendix drive in the starter. The starter gear is supposed to extend to meet the flywheel when the starter spins.

While driving starter engauges and horn blows

First check motor sure no movement when turning steering wheel...the starter has a bendix that is spring loaded to engage, and dis-engage...this could be worn out and require a new starter...older cars sometimes used shims to set the necessary gap between the starter and flywheel...Hope this helps.

Car overheated and now starte runs but wont crank engine

That means the starter bendix drive gear and solenoid got problem.
Solenoid is a magnetic drive that pushes the bendix gear to engage the flywheel and rotates the crankshaft.
My advise is pull down the starter assembly and check the parts I mentioned, replace if it is broken. If you have no experience on such repair a garage mechanic/technician can repair it easily.
Hope that helps!

1989 volvo 760, 4 cyl turbo. our stationwagon is having a little problem starting. in the morning or the first drive of the day the car starts fine but every once in a while we drive it and go into the...

Check the connection at the starter relay. The battery cable should run to the relay and another runs from the starter relay to the starter. If the connection seems fine, the relay itself may have a crack within., preventing a starting connection. If this isn't the problem, the starter solenoid may be getting to hot and not engaging the starter bendix.

Intermediate Starting Problems

The most common cause of a "No Crank" condition is a bad starter solenoid. The starter solenoid is a large coil that, most often, sits on top of the starter and engages the Bendix drive with the flywheel and sends power to the starter. If the internal coil goes bad, the solenoid won't engage the Bendix or turn the starter on. This condition will not cause any noticeable noise other than the clicking.
