Hi, you have dead spots on the starter commutator. The starter must be rebuilt or replaced.

Just replaced my start in 73 olds delta 88, 350 engine new battery also.For some reason starter is sticking, wasn't sticking previously.


If you mean staying engaged after starting it will need to be shimmed away from flywheel. Parts store should have shims in stock start with 1 test it add as necessary.

Location of the starter 1989 Corolla wagon engine whizzing when attempting to start and want to bang starter at least


The starter is located on the backside of the engine (firewall side) on the drivers side, from symptom described it sounds like a bad starter drive. The starter needs to be removed, disassembled and the drive replaced. I have found that banging the starter usually only works when the starter has very worn brushes that builds a pile of carbon in the bottom of the starter causing a short and banging the starter sometimes disrupts that unwanted ground path or the brushes are so worn they don't contact the armature properly to make good contact after the armature stops spinning from it's last start. Some times the shock of banging the starter will shift the brushes enough to allow it to start the car.

Nissan pulsar '88. replaced starter motor, then


Is it a manual, or an automatic? Earlier Nissans sometimes have a problem with the neutral safety switch (a device that keeps the engine from rolling over in gear or without the clutch depressed.) Generally, if their bad, they need to be a little warm before they'll start, like setting in the sunlight for a few hours.

Good Luck!

Loud banging noise from starter when trying to start wont turn over


sounds like you starter drive is bad ,thats a easy repair, but I hope your flywheel is ok because that is not, you need to pull your starter, and check the teeth and you need to look in there and check your flwheel,if teeth are missing on the flywheel you will have to remove engine or tranns to repair,I hope this helps you and please rate this

FUEL PUMP MAYBE? is it common?


yes it is very likely it is a fuel pump sticking, to verify this buy a can of spray starter fluid, next time it won't start spray the starter fluid into theintake air hose on the engine, if it starts and then quickly shuts down u need a fuel pump, also replace the filter.

The acr would not start. Battery works. I banged


If you banged on the starter motor and it started then you have a stickie bendix drive and solinoid sticking
But if you have to also jump start it as well then do this.....When it wont start before doing anything else turn on the lights and hit the starter and if the lights go dim or go out the battery is no good or you have a short in the eletc ...so take battery lead off for 2 days and if starts you have a SHORTin the eletrics

Replaced starter on a 1991 Cadillac DeVille still won't start


Is this possible ? Banging on the starter surely jarred either the solenoidm the starter brushes or armature. I've done that a 1000 X with poitive results, and in the end overhauled or replaced the starter. Now you say this has been going on for 2 mos or so, could there NOW be SOMETHING ELSE ( new problem ) like the battery /starter connections, ignition switch, etc causing no power to the starter , Hoping all re-connections are good.

My car starts ok but a bad banging noise happens ,it is automatic,could it be something to do with the weather,it has antifreeze in help


hi thanks for update if as you say this just happened as you turned key to start? if you say noise is heavy banging and possibly around the rear/of engine adjoining the g/box? this sounds like the adaptor plate that is fixed/secured to crank flywheel and has the torque convertor bolted to it? these plates sometimes crack or the bolts securing t/convertor come loose and causes banging due to movement with the same sudden starting as your symptoms however if you wish to diy check? disconnect earth lead on battery then remove starter motor after disconnection of leads then you should see through starter mountinghole the flywheel? and a series of bolts/heads if you turn engine clockwise by hand use a socket+bar to check these bolts for secure? should have 6 or more?? around the circumference ? if loose? retighten? but if sheared then box has to come out for further investigationas to damage? sorry but let's not think negative waves eh? will keep fingers crossed for good luck ?
