Car overheated and now starte runs but wont crank engine

That means the starter bendix drive gear and solenoid got problem.
Solenoid is a magnetic drive that pushes the bendix gear to engage the flywheel and rotates the crankshaft.
My advise is pull down the starter assembly and check the parts I mentioned, replace if it is broken. If you have no experience on such repair a garage mechanic/technician can repair it easily.
Hope that helps!

Car wont start batter is good

Does it crank over or even try? Clicks even? If you are getting at least clicking sounds, it may be the starter. You can remove your starter fairly easily and take it in to be tested to be sure. If it's not the starter then it's probably electrical and you may want to take it to a mechanic. Good luck!

I have just purchased a 1994 6.5 turbo diesel. The guy says it runs but has been sitting for a little. I tried to get it started but it will not fire. Just put two new batteries in it and have had the...

If you can easily turn over a 6.5L engine by hand, then I wouldn't suspect an engine mechanical issue. They do need an excessive amount of amperage to crank, I would agree the starter is weak if you have replaced both batteries.

Starter, how to replace on a 4.0 olds aurora 2001

First, Drive your cars frontend up and on a good set of car ramps, which is the safest and easiest way for a back yard mechanic to gain more working room on underside of vehicle. Next, disconnect your positive battery cable because it goes directly to your starter located under the vehicle. You don't want sparks flying while removing it! Now, if you can easily get at the two electrical connections on the end of your starter while it is still bolted in, do so and disconnect them, If you can't get at them you'll have to remove the two long bolts that holds your starter in place first, then you'll be able to drop the starter down to get at those connections and remove. CAUTION: Starter is pretty hefty so be prepared! DO complete re-install in reverse of course and you should be good to go! Hope this also helps:

1993 chevy pickup, won't start, just clicks when you turn the switch. We know it's not the battery, or the starter. we have had them both tested.

Battery, Starter and Solenoid...those are all the parts. Got to be one of them...likely the solenoid if the starter checks out good. Easily jumped by someone with a little mechanical knowledge. Corner garage can check it in a few minutes.

I need to replace a starter on a '92 Buick LeSabre. I'm a fairly novice mechanic and was wondering if this is a fairly simple job. Are there any other things in the way, or can I easily remove the stater?

unhook the battery

remove the two or three bolts holding the starter on. pay attention to lengths of the bolts so they are put back in the same holes

take the wires off the old starter one at a time and attach them to the new starter (so you are sure which connector they go on)

bolt on the new starter.

hook up the battery and you are done.


Please take a momemt to rate this solution.. thanks

1981 Audi S4000 Quattro wont start, after I accidently tried to start it in gear. How would I go about fixing the problem?

When you try to start it now, does the starter motor run or is there no sound at all. If you can hear it running or spinning freely but not cranking the engine, you will have to repair the starter motor. (most probably a bendix replacement)
If there is grinding or loud clicking you will have to replace the bendix and repair the ring gear. (the ring gear can be repaired in place if it can be reached with a dremel.)
If there is no sound you will have to check the start circuit by firstly activating the starter by connecting a battery positive (+) charge to the solenoid start terminal on the starter and work your way back to the start relay, Neutral switch and ignition switch.
If you have no electrical experience, an auto electrician or mechanic should be able to solve the problem easily.
Hope this will help you.

1991 Pathfinder Starter Problem


Have you checked your INTERLOCK SWITCH in the tranny, and while you are it, the safety switch on the clutch, thats the one that wont let your truck start unless you depress the clutch, to see if its properly adjusted. Its the one to the left of the stop light switch. You also have an interlock switch in the dash panel, but that is for the rear window. You might want to replace the clutch switch, since you stated depressing the clutch sometimes makes the starter work, Its probably worn out. Also:

There is a harness that goes to the starter right near the starter itself. The connections of the harness might be frail. It can be easily removed, especially if the truck is on a lift. Make sure the connections are solid and clean. Or have a competent person check the harness for continuity.
And for a additional insurance.

There is a BIG Connector in the engine compartment roughly somewhere mid after the battery between the fender skirt and the engine, similar to the one that connects the injector harness. That connector goes to the starter and the Alternator. You can easily pry them apart unlocking the the tab on the connector. Ensure those contact are also very clean. That should solve your problem.
