Question about 2000 Oldsmobile Bravada

Open Question

Went to start and it let out a long whine. I'm assuming it's the starter, but how to know for sure? The truck isn't worth the 514.00 I was just quoted, besides the 80.00 tow. I can get a 46.00 salvage part, but I'd like to be sure before I order it

I have a 2001 dodge intrepid. new battery. new starter. Cleaned all connections. I hit the key and starter whines but does not engage?


First make sure that the new battery has plenty of charge, and isn't faulty.
The starter motor uses a solenoid to engage with the engine. If the starter is spinning, but doesn't connect, it may mean that the solenoid isn't receiving power, or that it is faulty. If you are confident with mechanics, you could take it out, run it unmounted. Then you could see clearly if the solenoid is engaging or not.

Starter making whining noise


sounds as if your starter isn't engaging,usually due to either the solenoid not operating the bendix or a bendix fault, to prove a point, if the vehicle is a manual, put it in gear, handbrake off and push the car forward ( which will turn the engine into a different possition) then put h/brake on out of gear and try starter again, if it tries to turn over its possiby the starter ring gear, if not it's starter.

Just had the timing chain repaired a week ago. Went to start the car today and it won't start, almost like it never connects (battery is fine). You also hear almost like a humming noise afterward (about 10...


so, when you try to start it, do you hear the starter make a noise like a clunk? or just a whining like a motor spinning. was the car running well after you had the work done on the timing chain?

it could be the starter solenoid not extending the pinion gear to engage the flywheel to turn the engine.

Car not starting


Verify 12V at the starter (+) lead.

If there is NOT 12VDC - first check the cables - they may be frayed or damaged or improperly connected at battery or starter.

If there is 12V, and no click when trying to start - the solenoid is faulty. You can JUST replace the solenoid, but its worth your time and effort to replace the unit as a whole. (you have to remove the starter anyway).

If there is 12V, and a click when trying to start - the starter is faulty - Replace starter.

If there is 12V, and click and whine (like a motor spinning) when trying to start - starter gear has been stripped or broken off. - Replace starter.

If no 12V the starter relay is bad.

If relay is good - your problem lies in the ignition module, or key tumbler.

Sounds like the bendix is stuck in the starter. When this happens, the starter energizes and turns, but the gear does not kick out to make contact with the flywheel. Have someone tap on the starter while cranking the engine.
