Question about 2003 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
The starter spins but the solenoid is not engaging.Its a starter faulty.Either the solenoid or starter motor is faulty.The whole starter has to be replaced.Remove the starter and clean it and lube it with starter grease, its available at auto-part store.Its called car grease.Apply it in the starter and let it remain for few minutes then try again.If still the starter solenoid not engaging then , the starter has to be replaced.
Also try this:-----
Tap firmly on the body of the starter with a small hammer while an assistant attempts to crank the engine. If the starter engages, then you have a faulty starter. If the starter doesn't engage, try turning the crank with a pull bar and socket, if the engine will turn, check the flywheel for missing or damages teeth. If there is no damage to the flywheel, replace your starter. If the flywheel is damaged, replace your starter and flywheel.
In most of the cases its faulty starter solenoid and starter has to be replaced.This will solve the problem.but in some cases the flywheel teeth also gets worn out, with solenoid and both the flywheel and starter has to be replaced.---------
This will help.thanks.Helpmech.
