Does the vehicle crank over? or does it make a grinding sound like the gear isn't contacting. If your hearing a grinding noise chances are the flex plate are missing teeth that the starter engages. Only way to replace that is to remove transmission. If your hearing a clicking noise check to make sure the battery connections are tight and the terminals are clean.

Starter spins but will not engage


this could be a few problems that cause this,

1. your battery could be weak and not have enough juice to engage the starter solenoid

2. the bendix could be messed up

3. this is probaly the most common problem, the starter solenoid went out

the best course of action would be to have your battery load tested, and if its fine, replace the starter

I have a 2003 camry V6 XLE. Battery is good when turning on the ignition. But when I try to start it I just hear this "Whinnie" sound. just spinning sound every time try to start it.


You have a bad starter drive. It's not spinning up fast enough to engage flywheel. Two options, both require starter removal. #1) replace starter w/rebuilt from any good parts store - it will come w/new starter drive. #2) replace starter drive, but means disassembly of starter and is more time consuming.

I have a 1990 ford f 250. When I try to start the car the starter winds up but doesn't turn the engine over. Someone told me the starter wasn't engaging and said it needs to be replaced but it started just...


i believe you are hearing the starter turn over but the bendix in the starter is probably bad which is what makes the starter engage the flexplate (flywheel) so unfortunately whoever told you to replace the starter is right, but lucky for you ford trucks have some of the easiest starters to acess

Good battery but won't start all you here is a clicking sound


Sounds like the start has gone bad, the clicking noise is the starter solenoid engaging the starter. Inspect the wire connection on the starter first and if all is good, replace the starter.

Thank you for using fixya and be safe.

When I try to start my 1991 dodge dakota it clicks before turning over and sometimes it won't turn over. I wanted to run a temporary bypass from the starter to check it but my repair manual doesn't have a...


the sound you hear is the starter solenoid engaging the Bendix into the flywheel, when the solenoid engages there are hi current contacts that make between the battery and the starter motor, over time these contacts burn due to spark when engaging, at the very least the battery terminal is corroded and cannot supply the current to the starter to activate, if the connections at the battery are sound, then the solenoid must be replaced, the starter is located underneath, and to one side or the other of the bell housing, follow the cable from the positive side of the battery down to the starter, you cant miss it, the solenoid is located on the top side of the starter and can be removed by removing 2 bolts on ether side of the solenoid, good luck

1997 Neon Starter Solenoid Engages,,BUT


ase mechanic here, sounds like the starter is on its way out, will have to replace since you cleaned all the connections, but in the mean time try hitting the solenoid portion with some object and see if the engine starts. if so the starter needs replacing.
