If the gear is meshing ok with the flywheel it should start unless the one way clutch in the starter gear is bad.

Have2002 honda accord starters new but wont turn flywheel flywheel teeth looks ok but wont start?


a mechanic knows the difference between cranking/turning over and starting
you say that the flywheel is not turning so obviously it will not start
now you have to tell us if the starter pinion is engaging in the flywheel teeth but the starter is not cranking the engine --indicates that the engine is seized up
now it it is an automatic , there is a possibility that the flex plate ( automatics do not have flywheels )) is broken and the teeth are no longer in a position to mesh with the pinion gear

I have a 89 jeep wrangler 4.2 with peugeot transmission ...I just bought jeep it started but makes a grinding sound like the starter bad then all sudden it won't crank...so I got new starter replaced...


recheck the parts to be the correct ones because what you are describing is a gear mesh problem. ensure the gear on the starter matches those gear teeth on the flywheel. once you know they are matching and are correct for that year and size of engine, you will need a variety of shims to set the distance between the two correctly. (which you already have experience at). But it is important you have the correct starter because the solenoid and the throw-out spring are specific made to travel a set distance. If that distance is not far/long enough the gear will not full engage the width/thickness of the flywheel tooth/teeth (which causes the starter gear to strip those teeth of the back side of flywheel). SO you need to do some serious looking at those parts and the meshing when solenoid is engaging.

2002 Kia Rio, sometimes it starts up fine. More and more often it sounds like the starter motor is spinning, but its not engaging. So it's not even attempting to turn over the engine. It's not a clicking,...


very good post, few like it.
this is the starter free spinning
the solenoids job is the engage the teeth the fly wheel (ring gear)

the pinon shaft in starter is dirty, clean it (easy fix)
bad starter solenoid. get a new starter , most solenoids cost more.
your suspisons are dead on.

Starter turns and has a grinding noise but wont crank the engine


more then likely, its the gear on end of starter not meshing with flywheel. the teeth on the starter gear are softer then the flywheel teeth. to prevent ruining flywheel. remove starter and. check it out. have a very good day !!

are you sure you got a good solenoid?souds like it's not kicking the starter bendix out for the start.if it hums that means it's turning right? it has to be the solenoid not kicking the starter bendix into the flywheel to start the engine.i would try another solenoid. thank you for choosing fixya.com

Brand new starter however once gear ingauges flywheel it wont retract


Hello, You will need to install a shim or washer in between the starter and the motor to give the starter a bit more clearance /space between the starter' s solenoid gear and the flywheel's gears. They currently are too close together or meshing too tightly to allow it to retract back into the starter's housing.
Good Luck, Rich

94 MUSTANG GT,STARTER CLICKS BUT WONT CRANK, NEW STARTER NEW POSITIVE CABLE, CHARGED BATTERY, HEADLIGHTS WORK GOOD


When you installed the starter you may have inadvertently put the gears in a bind. Make sure the bendix meshes properly with the flywheel. The bendix is the small gear on the starter that slides out and connects with the flywheel when the ignition key is turned.

Wont start wont even turn over turn the dey and get a whining sound


You need to replace the starter. That whining sound is caused by a faulty solenoid in the starter which is responsible for meshing the starter gear with the gear on the engine flywheel.

Intermittent non-starting caused by high pitched whirring when key turned in ignition


Hello;
The problem you are experiencing is one of two possiblilties. First, the bendix is weak in the starter. Best course of action is to replace the starter. When you pull the starter out, use a pry bar or screwdriver to rotate the flywheel an inspect the meshing teeth of the flywheel. If there is a section that has worn teeth then the flywheel needs to be replaced.
Thanks;
