Take the starter out and see if the starter drive gear is stripped or just need lub for the bendix( the thing that makes the gear move forward to engage the other gear.

I have a 2000 toyota celica gts and it wont start or turn over the starter will make like a whinning sound but its not trying to crank the engine maybe its the starter but just in case its not anybody have...


Likely either the starter or solenoid. Solenoid is a combination of relay and actuator, pushing the starter's gear into engagement with your flywheel.

From your description it seems that the starter is not engaging to turn over the engine. First ensure all the connections of the thicker cables to the battery, starter and tractor frame are clean and tight. If starter motor is turning but still not engaging it will mean that the pinion on the starter motor is binding on the shaft. You can buy a new starter pinion gear from your local B & S agent.
To replace pinion, remove starter motor from engine, remove old pinion and put on new one and reattach starter to engine. If fuel & spark are right you should be up amd running.

My bike wont start. it just makes a noise like a machine gun


It sounds to me like your battery is bad. Take the battery to your local automotive parts house and ask them to load test it for you. What it sounds like is you have a cell shorting out in the battery. This would result in the voltage on the battery dropping below 12 volts when you attempt to start the bike. With the voltage that low, the solenoid "hold in coil" cannot hold in the solenoid plunger to engage the starter motor. The result is that "machine gun" noise you hear with the solenoid plunger going in and out rapidly.

2006 Dodge Caravan Engine Light Blinks 10 Times & wont start


It sounds like your starter needs cleaned or replaced. The poping noise could be the actuator not engaging right. As for the engine light, it could be just a coincidence.

No starter engagement 2005 Silverado 1100


I would seriouly look at the starter clutch, the 1100 yamaha cruiser motors are notorious for this problem way back when the same motor was in the viragos and the xvs 1100 vstars, yamaha have tried to fix the prob over the years but stillhavn't got it right. if it just spins and whirs without engaging the engine, but sometime will kick in engagement, it sounds like your starter clutch is on it's way out. they cost from yamaha around $450- 500 ea plus around $350 to fit you have to include a $30 gasket in all that.

Starter makes weird noise dosent turn over


Starter drive not engaging fully . Sticky or worn, but don't think changing thermostat had anything to do with it. Try having starter drive inspected & lubed if possible , but you may end up with new starter.
