Try turning the motor by hand if it turns freely you still have starter problems, Make sure your battery is complete charged and all terminals are tight and clean.

Wont start. Starter tries to engage but theres a "whirring" noise instead of the car starting


Sounds like starter solenoid is failing to kick in. The whirring is most likely the starter motor turning, but the teeth aren't engaging on the flywheel ring gear due to failed solenoid.

Brand new starter was installed in my 2003 nissan altima but when i try to start it sounds like its grindinding the sound is similisr to when you already have the car running and you try to start it...


you could have a bad flywheel, missing teeth, was that checked when the starter was out ? if not, your going to have to check it now, also , check the teeth on the starter and have it bench checked to see if it engages properly, Its not unusual for a rebuilt to have faults

My van will not turn over,i thought it was the starter cause it wasnt starting it will turn over but not start.so i put a new battery in it cause i was told the old one wasnt kicking out enough amps.and it...


If the starter motor spins and does not engage, thump the case of the starter motor with a piece of 4 x 2 or a lump hammer handle. If that fixes it, the fix will be temporary. Take the motor off and lubricate the bearings, paying attention to the dog wheel slider.

I HAVE A 97 F250 7.3 DIESEL. THE STARTER IS NEW BUT WHEN I TRY TO START IT IT SOUNDS LIKE THE STARTER IS KICKING IN AND TURNING BUT THE MOTOR IS NOT TURNING. WOULD THE GLOWPLUG RELAY CAUSE THIS?


Don't think so. It sounds like the starter is mis-aligned and not engaging the flywheel. When the starter spins, the gear on the end is supposed to move out and engage the flywheel. Sometimes the springs are bad or there is too much friction on the spiral shaft, but if this is a new starter, more than likely it is mis-aligned.

Car won't start


If you cannot hear the starter motor, check fuses, there can be a broken contact to motor or ignition barrel faulty.
