Actually this sound to me as to be the kick out bearing on the starter itself. after it has been on the car for a few years they tend to get moisture into the outer bearing on the starter this washes the grease out over time and it makes a horrible growling, screeching, or rubbing noise after starting. this starter should be replaced in the near future if not it will seize up and just click when trying to start the car....... I hope this has been helpful.

Can 2008 ford f350 6.4 crank without transmission?


strange question
as to think why the transmission would be missing


motor will crank with the starter motor if transmission has failed


automatic transmission has a neutral safety switch
if that is faulty the starter may not crank


if a stand alone motor
starter motor will need to be bolted on and spaced to match the flywheel teeth

spacing has to be exact replacement for the missing gearbox housing thickness

My 1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse gs won't crank. Just sputtered and now won't even crank. The battery is good, already had it checked.


If the battery is definitely good, I'd suspect worn contacts at the bottom of the starter solenoid, which won't pass current to the starter, or a dead segment in the starter motor.

If it is a manual you can try a clutch start, and if the starter then operates it is probably a dead segment, which comes to rest under the brushes now and again.

If an auto you will have to get the starter motor checked out. Some people recommend hammering on the housing but I think that is just relief from frustration.

I replaced my starter on my 94 ford ranger. my truck won't start, when it cranks, it makes a loud grinding noise. How can I fix this problem?


When buying starter motors it is essential that the starter pinion teeth are of the same pitch as the flywheel ring gear. Not all starters from the same make fit different engines because of this problem. However I would be checking that I had put the starter in the housing properly as any misalignment will cause your problem

Where is the starting motor in Nissan xterra2000?


the starter on most vehicles is bolted to the bell housing of the gearbox, thats the bit that covers the fly wheel, when the starter spins it shoots out and turns the fly wheel , (cranking the engine)
start by finding the bell housing, also the starter has a direct feed from your battery try following the cables back , remember to disconnect the terminals first , dont want any electric shocks !! hope this helps

Turns over but wont crank...horrible screeching noise


To clarify, if the engine cranks or turns over but won't start, look for a stuck pulley on the engine. You may be hearing the belt slipping on that pulley. Take the belt off and try turning each pulley - also try starting the engine with the belt off.

I have a 95 mercury villager that started making a knocking noise when idling. If I push on the gas it would go away. I pulled into the drive last night and it died. When I tried to restart it made a...


ALWAYS START WITH CHECKING FLUID LEVELS AND CONDITIONS.THIS ENGINE SHOULD BE A NISSAN BUILT V6 OVERHEAD CAM DRIVEN BY A TIMING BELT.ENGINE BEARING FAILURE NOISES USUALLY INCREASE WITH ENGINE RPM.IF STARTED IS SUSPECT THEN FIND SOME MEANS OF ROTATING ENGINE AT FRONT CRANK PULLEY,GRABBING LOWER PULLEY BY HAND AND TURNING OR SOCKET ON CRANK PULLEY CENTER RETAINING BOLT.IF ENGINE CAN BE TURNED IN THIS MANNER THEN THERE IS MOST LIKELY AN INTERNAL ENGINE FAILURE.IF IT DOES TURN OVER THEN LOOK CLOSELY AT STARTER OPERATION.

Doesn't want to keep running and some grinding noise when startin


From what you describe I would suspect that the starter is not fully engaging. I'm assuming that the grinding noise you hear when you try to engage the starter is INSTEAD of the engine cranking. If I assumed wrong, ignore the following:
Pull the starter, check the flywheel for excessively worn areas. Most of the time the flywheel is ok, it's just the starter. Any time you disassemble a starter you should replace the bushings and brushes. Never remove the starter with the battery still connected. Remove the negative terminal from the battery before you attempt to remove the starter.
