Hello there:
The spinning that you are hearing is the bendix spinning there is a
engagement spring that forces the bendix to engage on the flywheel
If this spring is weak or broke the bendix cant engage furthermore if the teeth on the bendix are broke or chipped or the teeth on the fly wheel are chipped or broke -this will not allow the bendix to engage or start to turn the motor ok so i would have these things checked out ok?
I hope that this is very helpful for you best regards
michael

Why did you replace the first starter? Check the starter. New or Rebuilt does not mean good.

1999 Pontiac Sunfire 5 speed won't start. Replaced spark plugs and checked ignition coil (fine). Sounds like it wants to turn over but makes a "whining" noise. Please assist. Thank you!


Is the engine turning over with the key in the start position? If the engine is not spinning over and you hear a whining noise, the starter is not engaging the flywheel. If the engine is turning over with the starter engaged, the engine has most likely jumped time that creates low or no compression which results in the whining noise.

Where is starter relay switch on a 95 cirrus lx 2.5 motor located at


If the starter spins but does not engage the flywheel, either the starter is faulty or there are teeth missing from the flywheel.

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.

Battery is good but when I turn it on it just clicks won't start,maybe after 20 times it starts


Without hearing the sound it makes - it's kind of hard to diagnose.

The engine starting process consists of turning the key to start, the starter motor's rotor moving forward to engage the engine's flywheel, and then the starter motor 's "rotor" spinning until you move the key from "start" to "run". You can hear the starter motor spinning - but one usually can't hear the rotor moving forward to engage the flywheel. As a result, you hear the odd spinning sound - which is the starter rotor spinning. The engine never actually turns over because the rotor never engages the fly wheel. If this is the case, then it is very likely that your starter needs to be checked and / or replaced.

Good luck!

Got a 95 mitsubishi galant 4 cil starter/flywheel noise


If this noise is really loud you will need to replace the flywheel or flexplate (if automatic transmission it is called a flexplate) and the starter, both of the gears that drive the engine rotation during start up are damaged. This damage is likely due to a bent or cracked flexplate if it is a auto transmission or a defective starter engagement drive, this causes the starter motor gear to not fully engage the flywheel gear teeth and causes damage, the damaged death cause the loud noise you here when you start the car. No matter the cause of this there is only one fix, a new flywheel or flexplate and a new starter.

MY 2002 4runner won't start. It makes a clicking


I am working on my mother-in-law's 2002 4Runner right now. The problem is a common one for Toyota starters and is likely due to worn contacts in the starter itself. When you engage the starter by turning the key, the worn contacts are preventing enough current from getting to the starter bendix (this is the rod that engages the flywheel and makes the engine turn over. you can hear the starter spinning, but the gear on the starter bendix is not engaged with the flywheel. If you can remove the starter, it is likely you can buy new contacts from Toyota, or your local parts store. Or you can buy a new/refurbished starter from your parts store for less than $200 and you will get money back for giving them your old starter. The tricky part is getting the starter out, which is what I am working on right now.

Starter makes weird noise dosent turn over


Starter drive not engaging fully . Sticky or worn, but don't think changing thermostat had anything to do with it. Try having starter drive inspected & lubed if possible , but you may end up with new starter.

1995 Dodge Ram 1500 starter


You said it's a new start that was tested thoroughly, but just wanted to point out that if the drive mechanism is damaged or hung up, the motor may spin but not crank the engine. The drive gear should move out when the starter starts to spin, if it's locked up or turns freely either way, the drive is bad and needs to be replaced.

The other possibility is that the flywheel has some broken or damaged teeth that are preventing the starter from engaging. It may sound far fetched but there are really only a couple of reasons why the flywheel wouldn't be spinning, as a starter has a LOT of torque and shouldn't have any problem at all moving the flywheel.
