Question about 2000 Ford Explorer
The starter kicks in but won't turn over. Took out of vehicle and tried it on the bench . It seems to work fine. I'm lost.
If that is not the probelm/solution, im going to guess you had the engein and transmition out. you need to take them both back out then focus on the transmition. the center shaft that the tork converter sits on has another shaft in the center of it. grab it with a pair of vice grips and **** it till it comes loose. when its loose slowly turn it and push it in at the same time, when its right it will slide all the way in easy, which will allow the tork converter to drop back further, therfor taking the flywheel out of a bind and allowing the engien to turn over. **NOTE:** before doing all this first check to see if the engien will turn over by hand with the transmition attached, if it dose, then this is not your problem.

I had this problem with an old truck. It was not a problem with the starter, but with the motor. See if you can turn the motor over by hand; use a big socket wrench on the bolt holding the harmonic balancer onto the crankshaft. I had water in the cylinders which prevented the motor from turning. In the VERY unlikely event that this is the problem, you will be able to turn the motor backwards which will push the water out. Then it will turn over and start. If this is the problem, look for a blown head gasket (i.e. white smoke, water in the oil, oil in the water, etc.) This is an unlikely solution to your problem, but it might not be the starter.
