    Changed the starter. N now loosi.g oil pressure

    Well, the starter must have worked. Do you know anything about this truck, is it new to you? Not much you could have done wrong except it a starter bolt was too long for the holenit was fastened to. Then a split or crack in block caused by too long of a bolt could have cracked an oil passage. Check water to see if oil is there.

The solenoid gets the "tickler pulse" from the cabin of the truck. There is a switch on the brake pedal or clutch lever which senses when your foot is pressing the pedal. When the truck senses your foot pressure it connects the ignition switch to the starter solenoid.

Many times this switch is bumped by the drivers foot either exiting or entering the vehicle and the switch is broken or moved out of place. So once you find the solenoid, use a voltmeter and ground one end and put the hot side to the tickler wire, not the solenoid. Then press the foot pedal and try the ignition switch start position and see if the tickler wire has voltage.

If no voltage the pulse is not getting to the solenoid. If it has a pulse, the solenoid is probably bad.

Are you getting ignition switch power to the relay or just battery main power? If no power is reaching the trigger wire on the starter likely the ignition switch or the relay has failed. Also, check power into and out from neutral safety switch.

Get the battery and charging system tested. Sounds like the battery does not have any cranking amps. If you have a digital meter check cranking voltage. If it drops below 11 volts when you crank the battery is toast..

SOURCE: have a 1995 ford f150 replaced starter selinoid

Do you mean that all that happens when you try to start the engine is a click from the solenoid? If so, Place a test light on the starter terminal itself and have someone try the starter. If the light comes on, but the starter doesn't run, replace the starter (probably bad brushes). Make sure the engine to frame grounding strap is intact first. Hope this helps!

93 suburban starter won't crank. new starter new switch nutural switch ok still nothing. can jump starter & it works


You either have a bad ignition switch (on the steering column) or a maladjusted switch. Another possibility but not too common is a problem with the wiring where it passes through the firewall. Not common but I have seen it happen.

My 2008 chevy Silverado LS won't start I just hear a clicking noise when I try to crank it and the battery seem to be fine


The click sound is the starter selinoid. you can attemt to bypass the selinoid by jumping the two big wires on the starter together and see if the starter spins. But it sounds like your starter is burned up. Time to replace it.

1997Ford F350 Diesel, Will not turn over, just one click and nothing. Is there a way to test the starter or solenoid? If there is can you please give me directions? Any other things I could check?


Try jumping it, sounds like the battery can be dead. But there is a solenoid on the firewall I believe the left side inner fender (in the engine compartment) you can turn the ignition on and jump the two leads with a screwdriver and see if the motor turns over. Remember this is a huge motor with high compression and the glow plugs have to fire to start. Takes a lot of juice to get it going (thats why it has 2 batteries). Make sure you have charged batteries. If not charge/jump the truck. The starter can only be tested off the truck, a solenoid if bad only cost a few bucks ($20-$30) but they don't fail too often

Im trying to start my truck and i get NOTHING! Ive tried to jump it. It was sterting perfectly an hour ago now I have zilch.


Well it could be a number of things. If you turn the key on and the dash lights come on like normal but when you try to engage start and the lights dim or you hear only a click... It could be a faulty starter selinoid. If you have no power at all when you turn the key to on it could be a fuseable link to the ignition or starter. I will need more info.
