Its the ring gear on the drive plate that the starter motor engages!
it will need replacing as the teeth will be worn down
uaually in one area where the ballance makes the engine stop at so you now are just waring on the new starter gear!

Starter problem


wiring to the starter; large cable coming from the battery to the
large post on the starter is direct current, hot at all times. there are two small wires that connect to the solenoid, one comes from the ignition.
Look for loose connection especially ground. If you jumper the connection on the solenoid to the large connection on the battery and it starts, I would suspect fault in the ignition circuit...

Change a starteer on a 1999 ford taurus


Disconnect the cable from the negative post on the battery. Use a floor jack to raise the car up and use jack stands to support the car. Remove the starter cable and the electrical solenoid motor connector from the starter solenoid.
Step 2
Use a wrench to remove the bolts from lower and upper starter motor mounts. Take the protective cap from the starter motor terminal. Press the retaining tab of the starter motor solenoid terminal connector and pull to remove it. Use a wrench to take off the nut holding the battery cable and take the battery cable off the starter. Usually, these are 1/2 or 7/16th.
Step 3
Take the two retaining starter bolts off, then take the starter out of the bell housing and out of the vehicle. Check the flex plate for damages before putting the new starter on.
Step 4
Place the starter in position and use your fingers to tighten the bolts. Use a wrench to tighten the lower and upper mounting bolts to 16 to 21 foot per pound. Put the starter battery cable back on and use a wrench to tighten the nut to 80 to 123 inch per pound.
Step 5
Put the starter motor connector back on. Push straight on the connector until it clicks, to make sure it's locked in place.

Changed starter and starter relay and it just click's v-8 360 4x4


check the ground cable to the motor, also if you put a socket and try to turn engine from crank bolt, see if you can trun to make sure motor is not locked up, if you can spin the engine with the rachet then you must have a weak battery or bad ground. hope this helps.

Seems like a short when I hook up neg. batt. cable.


Starter power wire could be grounding out causing it to lock the starter in even if the engine is running, as well as making the cable arc at the battery. I would first trace the wire from the battery to the starter and make sure it isn't grounding somewhere. If it isn't it could be the starter going bad internally. My guess would be the wiring, especially where it bolts to the starter.

WHERE IS THE STARTER


The starter is located in middle of 96 3.8L T$C Van about at the level of the visible row of spark plugs ... you must get under the van to see the solenoid and starter. 
Here are the directions to replace it ... I had the hardest time putting the spacer up in place - it was like a big gasket but made of metal and the bolt holes held it in place ... it would not stay on the starter for me.
Disconnect the negative battery cable.

Raise and safely support the front of the vehicle securely on jackstands.

Disengage the solenoid wiring connector from the terminal. This connection may be held in place by a retaining nut, or it could be a push-in connector. Mine was a push in with screw driver to release then pull the wire fitting out.
Remove the B+ nut and wire from the starter motor terminal. Need deep socket.
Remove the starter motor-to-transaxle bellhousing mounting bolts - only 2!!
Remove the starter from the vehicle. If equipped, remove the starter motor spacer. Mine had the metal spacer that looks like a metal gasket ... it seems to keep dirt and debree out of the bell housing and seals it off from dirt.
To install:
If equipped, hold the starter motor spacer in position - hardest part!!!
Install the starter motor into position on the vehicle.
Install the starter motor-to-transaxle bellhousing mounting bolts. Tighten the mounting bolts to 40 ft. lbs. (54 Nm).
Engage the solenoid wiring connector onto the starter terminal.
Connect the B+ wire and tighten the retaining nut to 90 inch lbs. (10 Nm).
Lower the vehicle.
Connect the negative battery cable.
Verify starter motor operation.
Good luck and hope this helps
