New battery van would click then started one day and starter would not shut off got new starter fine for two days then does same thing and started smoking what is causing this


if there is a relay in the starter circuit, that is suspect
I would remove the starter motor and check 2 things
first is the condition of the teeth on the ring gear
they have a habit of burring over and the pinion gear gets stuck and will not disengage
next is to check is the pinion teeth the right number on the new starter for the ring gear
That is sometimes an issue but I would suspect first a relay , next damaged teeth on the ring gear ( they appear at specific places on the ring gear (90 degrees -120degres and 180 degrees and run for around 6 teeth where the starter initially engages the ring gear
the smoking is from a burnt out starter because when it is stuck in the ring gear , the starter becomes a generator with uncontrolled current generated going straight to ground

How to rebuild dana 60 front?


Fully rebuild, or partial rebuild? Pinion, ring, spider gears, pumpkin, bearings? Rebuilding it FULLY and PROPERLY is a big story, one too big to relate here, and it takes quite a lot of special tooling (differential spreader, dial indicators, etc). Please don't attempt this unless you have a well equipped shop.

If you just need to replace the spider gears, that's easy. Drain the oil, remove the cover, rotate the pumpkin until you can unbolt the crosspin. Push/pull the crosspin out, rotate the spider gears until they come out. Remove the side gears. Remove all four thrust washers.

Replace all four thrust washers, then the new side gears, then mesh the new spider gears with the side gears & rotate them into place. If the crosspin hole won't line up, rotate one axle shaft until it does. Install the new crosspin and bolt it in. Replace the cover gasket and cover, refill.

Going further requires a LOT more work, but you'll need to remove the spider & side gears first anyway. If you're replacing bearings or the pumpkin or the ring & pinion, you'll need a bunch of new shims to work with until you can get the ring-pinion clearance exactly right. You'll also need a differential spreader to get enough space to remove/install the pumpkin with its bearings in place. If you're replacing the pinion gear, you'll need to take some painfully exact measurements or you'll NEVER get the ring/pinion clearances correct.

Worn teeth on flywheel


Worn teeth on a flywheel are usually a result of a starter problem such as a drive or the starter not lined up properly or loose causing the starter driver gear to mismatch with the teeth on the ring gear. This eventually wears the teeth on the flywheel away. Transmission will have to be unbolted and moved back for enough room to work or completely taken out. The flywheel will need to be replaced or you can get a new ring gear cut the old one off , weld the new one on then balance it. Best just to get a new one unless you have a real shop. LOL Nowadays most mechanics just get a new one, less hassle and quicker plus I don't think half of these yahoos would know how to properly replace the ring gear anyway. Check your starter for damage also.

Starter motor or fly wheel problem


The starter is not engaging with the flywheel, sounds like teeth missing on starter ring gear, when you move the car in gear, you are turning the engine, so repositioning the ring gear and then it starts. The starter needs to come off and inspect the gear on the pinion and you should be able to see the ring gear through the starter mounting hole, (you will have to turn engine to see all of it). If it is a worn ring gear, it's gearbox out and a new flywheel. Good Luck.

MY 1996 JEEP CHEROKEE will not crank, replaced the starter and charged the battery. I get a high whine when i attempt to start


Does it go rrrrrrt? try haveing key out of ignition, turn motor a bit by hand (with a socket on balancer bolt) Then try to start. If starts you will probably need a new ring gear (big job, gearbox out) Ring gear can be inpected by removeing inpection plate from bottom of bell houseing if it has an inspection cover otherwise remove starter & turn motor by hand whilst inspecting ring gear. starter drive gear meshes with ring gear & wears only in o couple of places

I`m changing ring and pinion gears on a 1985 Diplomat. Other than eyeballing up, is there a set dimension they should be set at? I have the new pinion in and have to adjust the ring gear but don`t know...


Unfortunately you're going to need an experienced differential mechanic to set up the new gears. The end play and gear backlash must be within thousandths of an inch or at best you'll have a noisy whining gear set, and at worst it'll destroy the gears in no time.

I have a 1991 dodge dakota that blew out the rear end, where can i find the gear ratio for the new rear end that i need?


I will assume you are missing your id tag. You will need to remove the rear cover and count the teeth. If you have never opened a drive axle I will warn you it will most certainly stink.

Now to figure the gear ratio:

The best way is to count the teeth on the ring gear and divide by the number of teeth on the pinion gear. Or you can count the number of turns of the pinion it takes to get one full turn of the ring gear.


For example, if we divide a ring gear with 41 teeth by a pinion gear with 10 teeth we find that the gear ratio is 4.10:1 (41/10 = 4.10).

My kia is not starting i got new battery, new fuel pump, new coils also wires and spark plugs, but still dont work. I also check the starter and starter still works what could it be... the starter, it...


Yes it could be wear on the ring gear.To check move the car slightly when in gear and try starting again. or remove the starter and check if any teeth are missing on the ring gear. (the ring gear is a large cog wheel around the outside of the fly wheel). It is still most likely to be the starter. Although it seems ok the sylanoid may be to weak to throw the cog wheel into the ring gear

Fly wheel ring gear replacement


You need to pull the tranny out.
Then the flywheel needs to be unbolted from the engine.
if it's an automatic, purchase a new flywheel, if its a clutch, you can have a new ring gear pressed on to the flywheel...
