1991 Eclipse 2.0 Turbo off & on starting problem

Hello, after my mechanic changed my original starter because he said it was weak, i have the problem of hearing a click when i try to turn on the car. at first, i would move the key while in the cylinder, then would turn on, some times would turn right on. It was fifty fifty chance in would not turn on, after a few weeks with this starter, would not turn on at all and would change starter. Worked for about a week and same thing happened. this is my 5th starter and is starting to click again. I changed the ignition swith, module. Any Ideas?

I have a 1991 f150 5.0 starts right up and runs great after drive for a while and shut it off has to cool off before starting or acts like starter dragging I have changed starter 3 times and timing is


Really need to know how many miles are on it and is it an all original Engine...?...Other than that I understand your problem...It surely sounds like you need a heat shield and shim the starter..I know it has happened to a few mustangs and camaros...That is how I repaired them...Be sure and make sure battery has full power....Shimming will line it up more with flywheel. Everytime the starter engages the gear slides out from the starter and connects the flywheel in order to turn the engine over..,then after it turns the flywheel and starts Is when you release the key and the starter gear slides back into starter..If it gets too hot the starter gear will be weak and not slide as easily....So replace or get a heat shield...Since you will be removing starter to install a good heat shield measure the length of the starter nose and the distance from starter gear to flywheel and shim as needed...Remember you have to allow for the starter gear movement ..

Car turns slowly but just wont start


Starter turning slowly sounds like:

- bad starter, or
- bad connection to starter, or
- bad connection(s) on starter relay, or
- low charge on battery, and
- and maybe some others... but these are most likely

I need to change my starter on a 1991 mercury sable


Starter are one of the easier mechanical engine parts to change.

1) DISCONNECT THE BATTERY.
2) Disconnect the electrical cable running to the solenoid on the starter.
3) Remove the two bolts holding the starter in place.
4) Pull the starter out.

To install another starter, do the above steps in reverse order in reverse.

Turning over but wont start


Most likely the battery is weak try charging it or replacing it with one you know is good ( borrow one from another car) even a weak battery will turn on the headlights and the dash lights but not start the car

Car makes grinding noise when I try to start, after new bolts were installed, started right up then 2 days later, it began grinding again but starts right up if someone holds the starter and engine...


try using some thread locker on the bolts. If this still doesn't help, you may have to get a helicoil repair kit. These kits repair damaged threads by drilling the bad ones out, tapping the hole with new threads, then screwing a thread adapter in to bring it back to the original size.
Hope this helps:)

Where is the starter eclipse turbo 1998


On the underside connected to the engine on your model eclipse I believe left side from looking at hood side. If its not turning over its your starter. Starters are easy fixes 100-150 new with returned core and about 50-75 rebuilt. Will have to jack your car up to get to it, just buy new one and you will see it =]
