The fly wheel gets stuck, but the engine is not siezed. Can removing the spark plugs and spinning the fly wheel fix the problem?


I think i understand what you are saying Mary. The flywheel is a gear with teeth that is bolted to the crankshaft. The starter engages the teeth on the flywheel to start the vehicle. If the flywheel has a worn spot on it where the teeth are broken. The starter wont turn over the engine and start the car. Putting a wrench on the camshaft pulley and advancing the the flywheel turning the bolt in the normal rotating direction . Should move the gear to a good spot where the starter will engage it. but the next time the car is turned off and the gear falls in the same position the same problem will result. If this the actual problem the only way to fix the problem is to replace the worn flywheel.

Starter sounds like its rubbing the flywheel


on a ford stater its almost impossible to rub the flex plate/ fly wheel however if the bendix gear spring is weak the stater drive can get stuck on the fly wheel and make a whining sound. if that is the case you will need to replace the starter if its a grinding sound its something totally different.

When I start my truck it makes a grinding sound like the starter is stuck on the fly wheel. I have to try to start it a couple of times before it will actually turn over.


hello there i would suggest that it sounds like the starter is going out and would replace it soon before you tear up the fly wheel this should solve you're problems hope this helps you out...

When i start my car the starter be grinding do that mean the staeter is bad?


it can do the pinion may be worn, take off the motor and see! do it now beause it might be the ring gear, you see if you ahve a bad pinion then it will dammage the fing gear! if the ring gear is dammaged... you can replace starter,, It may seem fine, but the dammaged ring will grind up the new starter's pinnion, once the ring gear is dammaged then it is gear box out! so look now to avoid more lenghty and expensive repairs!! Have a nice DAy........Bruce.

Cost to replace starter & flywheel on a 2003


for the starter and flywheel 1400 sounds right they would have to take the tranny out to get to the fly wheel but why do they need to replace the fly wheel did your old starter do a lot of grinding its not to often you have to replace a flywheel unless the starter wrecked it somehow again not to often starters are ment to break before it wrecks the flywheel the flywheel made of harder metel i would get a second opinion on replacing the flywheel

How do i change the starter on a 96 century


If it's the 3.1 or the newer 3100 the starter should just be a couple 13 and 15mm bolts. Plus the nut for the cable. Hope this helps.
