Sounds like a battery connection,try this ,turn the headlights on,have someone watch or whatever,try to start it,if the lights go out,it's a poor connection(probably at the battery) if they stay on,it's a starter issue.

When I try to start, why does it sound like the starter is spinning and not engaging anything?


You may need to take the starter off and have it bench tested.
The problem could be the starter drive, or you could have some missing teeth on the flywheel. The drive is supposed to extend when the starter spins to make contact with the teeth on the flywheel. You could also try turning the crank a few inches and try the starter again.

Starter won't engage heat gauge goes across to hot when trying to start truck. What causes this?


Voltage drop? I'm guessing you don't have a voltmeter, so turn on the headlights and observe them as someone tries to start the truck. If the lights go out, bad connection at battery, starter, or ground. If the lights get dim, probably the starter-it's drawing power, just not working. If the lights don't change, check for power going to the starter solenoid on the small wire on the starter; voltmeter or test light, check if the small wire to the solenoid has power when key is held in start position-in crank position. There should be battery voltage there when the key is turned to crank. If so, the starter or solenoid is bad. If no power there to solenoid, power is lost somewhere between ignition switch and the starter wire.

Dirty connection, clean battery terminals and connectors first if it still happens check starter connecions or if auto could be faulty safety switch.

Getting power to starter but not engaging had starter checked is good sometimes it will engage but most of the time it wont could the switch be bad or is...


If you turn the headlights on with the car off and have an assistant watch them they should "dim" if the starter is getting current and trying to engage when you try to start the car. If they do not dim when you try to start it then the key is not giving the starter the signal to turn over. If you don't have an assistant, turn the headlights on AND the dome light and check by yourself, it just makes it more difficult.

Starter wont engage


The problem is either the starter solinoid (located on fender near battery) or you are not getting power to the "s" terminal on the starter solinoid from the ignition switch. If you follow the positive battery cable from the battery you'll follow it to the solinoid. Remove the small wire from the terminal marked "s" on the solinoid and using a screwdriver jump from "s" terminal (not the wire) to where positive battery cable connects to solinoid. (with battery connected). If starter doesn't do anything the solinoid is bad. If starter cranks then you are not getting voltage from ignition switch through "s" terminal wire.
