Starter winding like a vacuum but won't turn over the engine


If your starter is spinning but no engaging the flywheel, then you have 2 possibilities going on here, the # 1 and most likely cause is the bendix on the starter is not kicking out to engage the flywheel so you'll need a new starter... pretty cheap fix.

# 2 is that for some reason the teeth on the flywheel have been chewed away and now the starter gear can't crab the flywheel, this would only be a secondary answer if for some reason your starter had been grinding while trying to engage. Just an FYI, this is very rare but has happened, considering that your engine flywheel stops at the same spot every time you turn your engine off, so the starter is constatly grabbing the same flywheel teeth all its life. For this fix, you'll have to have the transmission removed and have a new flywheel installed on your engine.

Starter doesn't engage the flywheel


Well since you replaced the starter, I think I would load test the battery cold and then again hot. It could be you have a dead cell in the battery and it is not producing enough voltage to work the starter solenoid.
Or it could be a bad connection between the battery and starter, or battery and ground.

New starter installed spins but wont engage ingine


The starter sprocket wheel is thrusted into engaging the flywheel by a big solenoid. That solenoid is integral part of the starter motor. If the starter turn itself but it doesn't turns the engine then either it was incorrectly installed or the thrust solenoid is defective.
Simple test: take out the starter, attach it to a bench, connect to it thew power cables from a battery (the minus one to the body, the plus one to the big connector bolt) then short the big connector bolt to the small one with a screwdriver - the solenoid should activate, the sprocket should be thrusted forward and the motor should start spinning it.
If that doesn't happen then the starter you just bought is defective, replace it. If that happens the starter was incorrectly installed on the engine. Reinstall it correctly.

Installed new starter, and it won't engage, just spins up. I inherated the car, it had a new engine and clutch installed in 2009, and it has been a on going problem. thanks db.


If it just spins when you turn the key, either the Bendix gear is not kicking out the starter gear, or the flywheel/flexplate hs broken or missing teeth. Was the old starter 'shimmed'? If so, did you put the same number of shims back in when you installed the new one? It is possible your starter, even though it is new, is not working properly-rebuilt units can be defective out of the box.
