    I found the problem to my Lincoln not starting. It wasn't the ring gear causing the problem. It was the AC compressor. It was ceased and would not let the crank turn. removed the serpentine belt and it started up, checked the compressor and it would not turn. put the belt back on and the problem returned. problem solved.

Hello so i ran my 1996 honda accord with no oil an it turned on an i got a few blocks an turned off an wont turn over an just makes a clicking noise


Sadly, I think the motor has seized solid. The click is the starter engaging, but it can't turn the motor. For a '96, I am sorry to say you may be calling the wrecker.

On start up there is a noise sounding like something is engaging


Nothing should engage when the engine starts running. The torque converter and transmission pump will spin faster, but not make noise. If they do it wont go away. If the noise is there as the engine start running on it's own. I would guess it is the starter bendix not disengaging after you let off the key. This would entail a new starter. Beings that you have a 98, you might be able to get just the bendix. But you have to take the starter apart to replace it. It's what push the gear forward.

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.

Starter engages but the flywheel will not turn


Can you tell if the starter is engaging the teeth on the flywheel ?
Or are the teeth on the flywheel stripped out ?
Can you turn the crank a few degrees and make the starter move the flywheel ?
Or is the starter spinning but the bendix gear is not pushing out to hit the flywheel ?

What would be the problem with our toyota 4runner starter motor that when we turn the key the starter motor just makes a grinding noise, is it the starter motor or something else??


The grinding noise is the starter hitting the fly wheel. This means that the starter is spinning but may not be engaging all the way. Your Flywheel is probably missing a few teeth now. I recommend replacing starter and flywheel. If you're on a tight budget then you could just replace the starter but it will cost you more in the long run.

96 Firebird Formula, 5.7 LT-1, 6-speed manual starter problem


Starter Have a friend turn the key to the start position while you tap the starter with a hammer. If the starter is going bad but has not completely failed most of the time it will start when you tap on it.
Ignition switch If the key turnes easily and lights, radio, etc. come on when it is in the on position I don't think it is the switch. Plus if the starter has never been replaced I'd say the chance that is the problem is very high.

How do you change the starter on a 96 town and country


  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Raise and safely support the front of the vehicle securely on jackstands.
  3. 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.
  4. Remove the B+ nut and wire from the starter motor terminal.
  5. Remove the starter motor-to-transaxle bellhousing mounting bolts.
  6. Remove the starter from the vehicle. If equipped, remove the starter motor spacer.
To install:
  1. If equipped, hold the starter motor spacer in position.
  2. Install the starter motor into position on the vehicle.
  3. Install the starter motor-to-transaxle bellhousing mounting bolts. Tighten the mounting bolts to 40 ft. lbs. (54 Nm).
  4. Engage the solenoid wiring connector onto the starter terminal.
  5. Connect the B+ wire and tighten the retaining nut to 90 inch lbs. (10 Nm).
  6. Lower the vehicle.
  7. Connect the negative battery cable.
  8. Verify starter motor operation.

2005 Town & Country stalls when turning the heater on


sounds like the heater is drawing down the battery. Which would be a battery or alternator problem most likely. If not check the amp draw of the blower motor .
