I need to know what you mean exactly by "it doesn't engage right" the only things that cause this that i have seen in 45 years is a defective starter or a damaged (worn teeth) or bent or cracked flywheel or flex plate, I have never seen any other reason as long as the mounting surface to the block is not damaged or cracked. This is a stock direct drive non gear reduction starter

2002 mazda 626 new starter wont engage flywheel. it sounds like starter is spining wont engage flywheel


Couple possibilities. Was the starter just replaced? If so. Were their any shims (small metal pieces) that were not put back? They space the starter so the bendix and gear can align with fly wheel.. secondly could be a bad starter, broke bendix. Bad gear..or third missing teeth on either fly wheel or starter..

I’m happy to assist further over the phone at https://www.6ya.com/expert/chris_ec38c09da1ae48dd

When i start the 95 tahoe, i hear a spinning noise. starter is not engaging the engine. it's a brand new starter.


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

Highly possible problem is the starter solenoid. You may hae to replace starter. Remove and have it checked.

Starter doesn't catch


Make sure starter is still tight to block,if so probably Bendix failure or fly wheel teeth.If flywheel you can turn crank slightly ! or 2 inches and starter will be able to engage.

Starter runs but will not engage fly wheel


The Bendix drive is bad in the starter. You can either rebuild it or just purchase a new rebuilt starter.
The Bendix drive is what pushes the starter gear into the flywheel the then it will turn the flywheel. When the Bendix drive goes bad the starter just spins/whirls.

Car starts but sometimes makes a whirling noise. I was told it was the starter


sounds like the starter is not disengaging the fly wheel quickly like it should when you turn the key the starter cog connects upto a fly wheel that has teeth all around it when the teeth of starter cog connect between teen on wheel it spins it to crank your car then goes back to starter if you hold your key on after starting the noise you hear is the starter cog(teeth ) still engaged in wheel if this is the sound it needs to be serviced not neccassarily replaced
