I have a 2000 toyota celica gts and it wont start or turn over the starter will make like a whinning sound but its not trying to crank the engine maybe its the starter but just in case its not anybody have...


Likely either the starter or solenoid. Solenoid is a combination of relay and actuator, pushing the starter's gear into engagement with your flywheel.

Passat 2.0tdi electric drive motor error 01602 car wont start?


For safety requirements you cannot start the car in gear . It has to be in neutral or park before it will engage the starter or if manual box you will need the foot on the clutch and in neutral as well. Some even require the hand brake to be applied also

My 2001 eclipse makes a strange roaring sound and wont turn over when i try to start?????


If I had to guess, I would say that the starter is not engaging the engine. When you turn the key to start, it energizes the starter and a solenoid that "pulls" the starter gear into the flywheel gear to turn the engine ovr. I suspect the roar is the starter motor turning and not engaging. You need to replace the solenoid, on some cars it is part of the starter and not available by itself.

My 92 saab 9000 wont start. it makes a spinning sound sort of like a hairdryer. the battery is fine and i get the oil changed every 3000 miles and all the other fluids regularly checked. so what could it...


Either the timing belt/chain/gears has failed, which can really change the sound of cranking, but the engine visibly goes around.

If the engine does not turn (as it sounds is the case with your car), but the starter spins fast enough to be described as sounding like a hairdryer, then the starter drive is bad and the starter will need to be replaced or rebuilt.

The starter drive is turned by the starter motor, and the drive in turn turns the gear that engages the flywheel of the engine. The part that turns that gear will not let the starter motor be pushed by the engine — it has a one-way, overrunning clutch in it. If the engine got a chance to spin the starter, the starer would simply explode. It is maybe 10 or 15 to one between the engine. One good start using the gas pedal would spin the starter like 15 to 25 thousand RPM...

If that overrunning clutch fails the starter motor cannot spin the gear that turns the engine.

Replaced starter still wont start soliniod good 90


if the motor turn over but will not start try looking at the cps(crank position sensor)it would create a no spark condition. its located at the back of the engine right at the bell housing for the transmission.you can test it with an ohms meter or just replace it.

Volkswagen passat 95 wont start in park position


It sounds like the starter safety switch is bad. It prevents the car from starting in other gears beside neutral. Try placing the gear selector in neutral and see if it starts. If it does not, then the switch needs replacing.

1995 nissan maxima doesnt start when cold, just clicks, and after trying for 5 to 10 minutes it finally starts... Please help me out...


it is one of two things.
  • the starter is either worn and brushes not making contact or an engine oil leak onto the starter. thus keeping the brushes from making contact you can check this by banging on the starter while someone trys turning the ignition back and forth to start.(making the click click click)

  • ignition switch is weak, not providing enough voltage from the to kick the soliniod all the way to start the starter

The way to check that is to hot wire the starter soliniod little wire, to battery voltage. (the big cable on the solinoid)
If it turns over good, then you can either replace the ignition switch or install a relay someware near the starter to supply it with propper current to kick the solinoid all the way to engage the motor.
The relay acts as a remote starter switch that feeds more direct power to the starter solinoid.Now the only thing the ignition switch is responsible for, is trigger the relay.
