If it sounds like a squeeling, it would be the belt. If it sounds like a whirr with sounds of metal, it will be the stater.

On start up there is a noise sounding like something is engaging


Nothing should engage when the engine starts running. The torque converter and transmission pump will spin faster, but not make noise. If they do it wont go away. If the noise is there as the engine start running on it's own. I would guess it is the starter bendix not disengaging after you let off the key. This would entail a new starter. Beings that you have a 98, you might be able to get just the bendix. But you have to take the starter apart to replace it. It's what push the gear forward.

98 grand prix won't start battery good tried jump start nothing removed glove box relay clicking ? checked fuses under hood in fuss box all good will not turn over clicking noise from relay...


Better check with a test light for power to the small wire that goes to the starter from the key switch. If no power need to check for a neutral safety switch or fuse. Or the starter you got is bad. Alternator will not cause not to crank over

Do you have the defrost on when it is doing this? Turn it off and see if it goes away. I'm still thinking A/C compressor.

When i turn the key forward the engine wants to start but doesnt just makes the roaring noise and doesnt start


It could be the starter, is it high pitch screeching, metal against metal, sound? Or more of whine? If it's metal against metal, the teeth on the flywheel ring gear might be damaged. If it's a high whine you are probably hearing the electric motor part of the stater and the "starter drive" is bad. The stater drive is part of the starter, it's the gear that engages with the flywheel gear. It is a one way clutch, it is supposed to hold when the starter is turning the engine. But, freewheel when the engine starts so it doesn't over rev the starter motor. When the drive goes bad it freewheels both ways. If you think the flywheel teeth are damaged you could try turning the engine by hand a little, WITH THE KEY OFF! Sometimes you can put a wrench on the alternator pulley nut and turn the engine a little. This will move the damaged teeth away from the starter and it might work now. Good luck.

Wont start


just one click or a rapid clicking???? a bad connection could cause this, or if its one big click and nothing happens, the starter solenoid may be bad. have someone tap on the stater while you hold the key in the start position. if it then starts, replace the starter. Buy quality parts, NOT from AZ if thats where you get parts.

98 chev blazer wont start or make any noises...


Listen for a click from under the steering column when you turn the key on. If you hear no electrical click then your ignition switch could be bad. If you hear an electrical click the you starter soleniod is bad.

New starter getting schliiiiing noise


sounds like the starter is not engaging the flywheel if the starter make noise like a power saw and the engine is not cranking may be the starter solenoid is not working I have seen this happen whit brand new starters now before you change your starter again ask some one to turn the key for you and see if the crankshaft or any otter pulley is rotating. if noting turn then replace the starter again and ask them to tested for you at the store and see if the gear comes out like it shut. If you see the crankshaft and pulleys rotating but the engine wont start you have otter problem if the engine hardly turn whit a fully charge battery or jump start from another car take all spark plugs off and tray again whit out the spark plugs if coolant comes out of the engine you have a floated cylinder and a blown head gasket. Note may be a good idea to change your battery clamps wile you are at it or at leas clean then using a wire brush bad contact on battery clamps causes to lose power doing start. hope can help you good luck. :)

if the clicking is repeated with out you releasing the key then the battry is in need of charging or replacing, if its a one click each time then the starter motor is faulty.

98 lesabre grinding starter


most likely your bendex wheel in the starter is not engaging the flywheel this could be due to a bad solenoid on the starter. chances are it's a bad starter, i would check to make sure all connections to starter are tight and you have atleast 11.5 -12.5 volts of current in the battery. low voltage can cause this problem as well
