SOURCE: starter runs but won't engage flywheel

Hello, I would make sure that your car is not one of those half year cars becuase two differn't starters may be offered for the same year of car. Also, I would check and see if your battery has enough CCA's to power your system. The only other thing is to turn your crankshaft with a breaker bar to turn your flywheel to possibly get a fresh area of teeth on it. If none of this fails it's as simple as just replacing the flywheel. If you did a bench test on the starter and the bendix engaged that is good. Buying parts from an Auto parts store does not gurantee the part is good and that the bendix engages the full distance to turn the flywheel. I would try to find a mechanic who rebuilds starters to make sure that the bendix is engaging fully. I hope this helps you!

SOURCE: 1994 Ford Escort- Went out to start the engine-

If you turned the flywheel with a screwdriver and the bendix engaged the flywheel, then it sounds like it could be the flywheel. There may be "teeth" missing on the flywheel, causing the bendix not to grab onto the flywheel. Have the flywheel checked. If there are "teeth" missing, then replace the flywheel. I experienced the same problem with my Nissan.

SOURCE: 1996 Yamaha wave blaster 2 760 starter won't engage into the flywheel

Replace it. The least expensive way to do it is to bring it to a place that rebuilds starters & alternators. Last I checked for my wave runner 3 a rebuild was $60 & a new one was $340. Good luck.

Not starting


If I understand your statement correctly, noise but the engine will not "turn over." This sounds like the starter motor is running but the gear that engages the flywheel gear-teeth is not making contact at all or is moving into too-slight contact, just enough to make a lot of noise. In U.S. cars the device on the stater motor that moves the starter gear forward is called a "Bendix." As the starter motor starts to turn, the Bendix shoves a small gear forward, engaging teeth on the flywheel which spins the flywheel to start the engine. If the Bendix is sticking or has failed the gear will not move forward at all or not far enough.

Sarting with the least cost first, I'd look toward a "sticky" bendix. Try using a light penetrating oil or perhaps, WD-40 to free-up the Bendix.

I have a 1985 bronco II 2.8l 5 speed manual, I replaced my starter 2 times and rebuilt my original starter so a total of three difernt starter's still nothing.. starter just spins.. I checked my flywheel...


Since no one has answered yet, I will comment. When any of these starters turned, their bendix switch should have extended to catch the flywheel. On some, a pin is used to position the bendix on the starter shaft.

Can not say why original bendix does not work except that it must be pinned to the shaft. For replacement starters, there can be differences in the gear size of the bendix. Even some gears have different amounts of teeth on the bendix gear. Have not heard of needing shims to mount the starter to the Ford engine, but old GM products were shimmed. For that matter, some windings inside starters could be reversed, especially in Marine dual engine applications.

You went to a lot of work to change the flywheel, check the length of the starter to see if it is mounting deep enough to catch the flywheel. Maybe the bell housing is interfering with installation.

Starter turns but wont engage engine?


Sounds like the Bendix... You might ought to pull the starter and look at the teeth on both the bendix of the starter and the flywheel. If the teeth on both are in good shape...then its probably a weak starter not throwing the bendix out to turn the flywheel. But...if the teeth are **** up on the bendix...its cheaper tp replace it. Make sure Battery is in good condition as well. Both battery AND starter can be tested at your local AutoZone... Hope this helps...

Turn switch on and all the lights work but the starter wont engage


If the starter wont turn...Id check / replace starter solonoid.
If the starter turns but doesn't engage the flywheel...I'd check / replace the bendix.
If starter checks good and bendix is good...I'd look at the teeth on the flywheel.

Hope this helps...
