Are you sure the starter is good, or is strong enough to turn the engine? First thing I would do is replace the starter. After that check the voltage when you are trying to start. Maybe the eletrical connection isn't good enough. In that case replace the cable.
Thank you,
Lee

Have2002 honda accord starters new but wont turn flywheel flywheel teeth looks ok but wont start?


a mechanic knows the difference between cranking/turning over and starting
you say that the flywheel is not turning so obviously it will not start
now you have to tell us if the starter pinion is engaging in the flywheel teeth but the starter is not cranking the engine --indicates that the engine is seized up
now it it is an automatic , there is a possibility that the flex plate ( automatics do not have flywheels )) is broken and the teeth are no longer in a position to mesh with the pinion gear

Starter motor/engine turnover


Check the alignment of the starter gear when it engages the flywheel. It may be going in too tight, or at an angle. It could be binding the starter.

I have a 1988 2wd pickup and the starter won't


starter wont turn or engages the flext plate,flywheel and still wont turn engine over?if this is the case you have a seized up motor,but if it doesnt even click check signal wire from ignition switch for power when you turn the key to crank.if no power your ignition switch,park/neutral safety switch(clutch switch if manual trans) or wrongly installed wired could be the problem.

My 93 jeep grand cherokee wont start but it is cranking over but not catching....checked all wires sprk plugs fluids air filter everything is connected been getting conflicting reports that its the starter...


if the starter is turning, but the motor isnt, its the starter failing to engage the flywheel. The rotation of the starter is supposed to force a gear forward to engage the flywheel, when that gear freezes up, the starter spins and the motor doesnt.you can try givinbg the starter a few sharp taps with a small hammer or wrench to see if it frees up

When turning key starter turns over but not engaging


if starter just spins and does not engage flywheel. it is usually the starter solinoid not kicking it out. when energized the solinoid, if good. kicks the starter gear into flywheel to turn engine over to start it. good-day !

When i turn the key forward the engine wants to start but doesnt just makes the roaring noise and doesnt start


It could be the starter, is it high pitch screeching, metal against metal, sound? Or more of whine? If it's metal against metal, the teeth on the flywheel ring gear might be damaged. If it's a high whine you are probably hearing the electric motor part of the stater and the "starter drive" is bad. The stater drive is part of the starter, it's the gear that engages with the flywheel gear. It is a one way clutch, it is supposed to hold when the starter is turning the engine. But, freewheel when the engine starts so it doesn't over rev the starter motor. When the drive goes bad it freewheels both ways. If you think the flywheel teeth are damaged you could try turning the engine by hand a little, WITH THE KEY OFF! Sometimes you can put a wrench on the alternator pulley nut and turn the engine a little. This will move the damaged teeth away from the starter and it might work now. Good luck.

My 00 impala 3.4 doesnt start.i took the starter off and checked it out but its fine. when the key turns the starter spins but wont engage with the motor.i have a brand new battery,all cables are connected...


Does the starter kick out and spin normally out of the car? Have you checked the condition of the flywheel? Ususally the starter doesnt turn until the solenoid kicks the gear out to engage the flywheel. Check if the gear on the starter is bad, it should slip one way, and not the other.
