I have a 99 dodge intrepid 3.2, I replaced the old starter with a new one and now the solenoid drive will not engage the flywheel, help me please


Did you check out the basics? Does the starter motor spin and kick out the drive gear? Did you check the flywheel teeth? Did the old starter motor use shims?

Chevy cavalier wont stop cranking


You need to make sure the solenoid wire isn't making contact with the starter wire. Be sure you don't have the purple wire making contact with the red wire.

Start sounds like its smacking the flywheel


A broken starter, 99.9% of the time, is caused by an engine backfire. Whatever caused the backfire is what ruined your spark plugs. From my experience, the most common culprit would be a bad crankshaft position sensor.

Tried to start my 2003 escalade this morning and it would only click. I replaced my battery and still nothing. after a couple of min. i tried agin and it started, this eve it is doing the same thing. just...


Yes - your problem is in your starter - specifically the armature and / or brushes. The starter is located on the passenger side of the vehicle, mounted to the front of the transmission and back of the motor. The starter's armature kicks out and connects with the Ring gear ( automatic trans) or flywheel ( manual trans) and turns the flywheel ? gear to engage the engine. The clicking indicates the solenoid is completing the circuit but the armature is not engaging the gear.The positive battery cable goes directly to the solenoid which is mounted to the starter and the positive cable MUST be removed prior to removing the starter. The armature and related brushes can be replaced instead of buying a new or rebuilt starter / solenoid assembly but should be done by a qualified professional as it can be done wrong and cause serious damage to the ring gear or flywheel.
Hope this helps and please rate my solution!!

Grinding noise when ignition is turned


THe starter engages the fly wheel and in the process turns the motor over to cause it to crank. The grinding can be a bad starter causing the gear to either not engage fully or not disengage. It can also indicate missing teeth on the flywheel from damage from starter. If the car cranks and grinding goes away it points to the starter solenoid not engaging properly.. pushing gear into contact with flywheel. I would recommend replacing the starter and you can replace it with a good mechanical knowledge and DIY.

Grinding noise when trying to start car.


hello first thing you need to do is take your starter out the starter drive gear either has busted teeth or the flywheel does with the starter removed mark the flywheel with chalk crayon so you no were you started from look at the teeth good keep turning the motor by hand checking till you come back to the original mark you made if there are no chips or missing teeth look at the look at the starter drive teeth there most likely busted or chewed down replace the starter goodluck please rate

99 Saturn SC2 will not crank


Hi,

If I understand you right, the problem is at certain times the engine will not crank, that is turn over when you turn they ignition key to START. And at times it will start and run normally. Offhand, I would discount the possibility of the Ignition Module. To my knowledge it has nothing to do with cranking the engine but rather providing the spark at the plugs through the coil.

Having said that, might it be that the issue is with the starter system. The starter system is initiated at the ignition switch when the key is turned to start. At this point, the ignition switch then provides +12VDC to a starter relay. The relay is but a remote switch with slightly higher amperage capacity. The starter relay then engages and supplies +12VDC to the staring solenoid. The starting solenoid then performs two (2) functions. It provides the switching action (hundreds amps) from the battery heavy cable to the actual starter motor. The solenoid likewise pushes a small pinion gear along the shaft of the starter motor to engage the ring gear. The ring gear is of course on the edge of the flywheel which in turn is attached to the crankshaft.

Starter system problems could be corrected by:
1. check battery, battery cables and connections;
2. charge the battery if required;
3. clean brushes and guides of brush holders of the starter motor;
4. clean the commutator and commutator segments;
5. check/replace the armature or field coils if determined to be defective;
6. in some extreme cases it could be the drive pinion or the flywheel gear ring is defective.
7. often it is the big switch that the solenoid activates that looses contacts causing no +12V internally to the motor.
8. Most likely would be a defective starter relay or the IGN switch itself. Relative to this, you might try and check the connectors/terminals and electrical joints.

In the picture below, the upper portion is the starter solenoid while the one below it is the actual starter.

Given the amount of work to overhaul a starter, you might consider just replacing it. This page might be informative.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
