I does sound like your starter is going bad. You should replace it. It may not be turning fast enough to engage your flywheel. It also may be your flywheel going out. Try the starter first.

Hi am larry and i have a 91 ford f350 7.5 and it will not start? So far i have replaced,battery,solenoid ,ignition switch, starter still no start,what am i missing.

hi larry : if you have an automatic transmission have you tried cycling it thru the gears and back to park or have you tried :N: for a start , other than that I guess a 5 dollar test light can be used to walk you right thru the electric circuit to see were the problem is ,

Turn key wouldnt start

Possible causes, flat battery, faulty alternator, coil or starter motor,though sounds more like power problem, do you have power to lights, radio etc when key is turned on even though nothing happens.

My car wont start. i turn the key and the car doesnt even try to turn on. the horn and radio works though

Sometimes dirty battery posts cause this issue. Get a wrench, remove the cables from the battery, scrape posts and cables shiny clean and re-install

Have you tried jump starting it? If it will start this way, then either your battery is going bad, or the alternator is not working properly.

If it will not start (not even turn over) with a jump, then the starter may be bad. Good luck...Chris

My timing chain tensioner was loose, however i kept driving my car cause i had important errands to run.When I parked it to go in the store and came back out and started it up again it wouldn't. Lights...

If the tensioner was loose and the chain had jumped a slot, you would have a hard time even starting the car if it even start at all. It would crank and everything but just would not start. The starter has no correlation with the tensioner. A bad starter will either do nothing, or it would clunk and not turn over.

Starter clicks when trying to start it. Replaced starter 3 times even though it bench tested fine, replaced terminals, made sure engine not seized, at a loss...

You need to put a starter solenoid relay into the ignition system. This fault occurs when there is not enough voltage supply to the small terminal of the solenoid on the starter motor, causing is to click and not engage properly.
Have this checked and let me know if you need more help.

Truck wont turn over but the lights and radio still work is it the starter

If you have tried a boost.......even though the lights and radio work and hear a click when turning to may need a starter.
It would be best to check for voltage to the starter and from the smaller wire at the starter solenoid when turning the key to start position before replacing the starter.
With the truck in park or neutral....jump the starter solenoid from under the truck......with no cranking from the starter under these conditions....yes...... you may need a starter.

If you do not get a voltage reading at the smaller wire at the solenoid when the key is in start mode....check the wiring,starter relay,the safety neutral switch and the ignition switch.
If you have anti theft.........this may cause a no start too.

Plenty of power in cab wont turn starter

even though there are accessories on, there may not be enough to turn starter over. Or the connection is bad or not metal to metal contact. Last possible cause would be faulty solenoid.

check cables to battery.if battery is 5years or older replace.
a bad ground cable and a weak battery will cause the starter to do as stated.
