Your problem could be Battery only has 10 volts and you need 12 volts,,, 2nd you might have a siezed engine or the wrong gearing on new starter motor
If you jump start with another car connect the jumper leads Red to feed on both cars and then earth cables if still wont turn over ,,,take starter motor out
and you will see the starter ring ,put a big screwdriver in and see if it will turn if no ,,, engine no good (sorry)

85 Chevy Surburban 6.2 diesel. Won't start. We charged the dead batteries and tried to start it. It started cranking then made a loud thud almost grind sound. We replaced the starter solenoid and Still...


Could be internal damage. Put a socket and wrench on the crankshaft pulley and see if engine is seized up. The thud is worrying, suspect major damage if the crank won't turn all the way round. If you can't turn the engine by hand, you will need a new engine (or new vehicle- that is a pretty old suburban, almost ancient to be needing a new engine!)
If engine still turns by hand, have your starter tested.

2000 Saturn LS2 makes thud noise when I finally get it to crank. someone told me that it is not getting oil to the top of the motor. Anyone know what's going on?


This makes no sense,

A thud may be bad motor mounts

A clank would mean the starter is engaging BUT not turning the engine.

Have it checked by a professional mechanic.

''thud'' sound when starting


Is the "thud" sound after start then put in gear or a "thud" just after starting. If "thud" after in gear, could be a CV joint wearing out

1995 nissan pu wont start... everything turns on


check for power to the starter at the starter's connectors while you have someone turn the key. If there is power, change the starter. If not check your ignition switch, (manual trans)clutch pedal switch, and starter fuses/relays. Hopefully this helps

Sounds like bad CV (constant velocity) joints in the front half shafts.

They make the most noise at a full wheel cut.
