The 4" dd starter had two different flanges for A/T and M/T. Your new flywheel probably doesn't match the teeth for the drive on the starter. Take the starter to a rebuilder that actually knows what they're doing-- not a parts store.

Either the starter isn't engaging the flywheel or the flywheel is chewed up/missing part or all the teeth/gears.

Put a new starter on every 6 months, sounds like apendex is not engaging, works good at first, then does not connect to fly wheel


you may need to put a thin spacer behind the starter so it sits closer to the fly wheel and ingages better and will not wear out.

How to remove starter from 96 Lincoln town car


If this is a 96 LINCOLN TownCar, then "techbuster" is way off. The 96 didn't have a solenoid on the fender. The starter is located under the passenger side of the engine just ahead of the transmission. It has three bolts holding it on. Remember to disconnect the battery first. The lower starter bolt can be accessed easily, but the other two could be quit difficult. They can be best removed with a very long extension inserted past the passenger side motor mount. The single ignition wire and the starter cable can be removed after the starter is tilted forward to remove it. The starter can then be tested as can the solenoid to determine which is the problem.

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.

New starter


Was there any shimms between starter and engine block, where it bolts up? If there was they need to be put back in. Sounds to me that the starter is to close to the block, and the teeth on the starter drive are not engaging the flywheel. If there was none get some and try it, any auto parts sell them they come in differnt sizes in thousands of an inch. You should be able to buy them in a package.

I put in new starter for 94 lincoln tc but its not working.


If starter was mounted properly it may be defective or may need to be shimmed. It can also mean that you have a bad flywheel but if this wasn't happening with old starter then you can rule that out. If old starter had shimms(small flat plates between starter and mounting surface,starter bolts go through them). If this is an after market starter then it can most definitely be defective. The fly wheel and the starter gear is meshing properly that's where the screech comes from gear grinding not engaging properly. Good luck Thanks for using FIX YA
