While you are turning the key to the start position get someone to tap gently on the solenoid with a hammer. The solenoid is the small round unit mounted on the starter. If this doesn't get the solenoid to engage you may have to replace the unit.

Starter doesn't engage the flywheel


Well since you replaced the starter, I think I would load test the battery cold and then again hot. It could be you have a dead cell in the battery and it is not producing enough voltage to work the starter solenoid.
Or it could be a bad connection between the battery and starter, or battery and ground.

Starter works fine but won't crank engine. the pick up has to be given a push first before it starts


If the starter is spinning when you try to start but doesn't spin the engine over then you most likely have teeth missing off the flywheel ring gear. The facts that you say you have to push it and then it starts means the flywheel position changes and the starter has good teeth on the flywheel to engage. To confirm this next time the engine won't crank over remove the starter and look inside at the flywheel for missing flywheel teeth.

Its a solenoid...it engages the bendix and truck starts...bendix should retract because power to it gets shut off by ignition switch going to "run".

Only way bendix would stay engaged or get a signal to keep turning ???
Bad contacts in ignition switch...maybe ??
Start relay in under hood power distribution panel has hot or welded contacts ?

I've gotta think about this one...hope this gives some help...

This sounds like there is a dead spot in your starter. The easiest way to resolve this issue is to replace your starter. Many times, if you take a lot of short-distance trips over the life of your car, the wiring inside the starter itself will wear (short trips means starting it more often, causing a lot of wear over time). Then the inner wiring of the starter wears too much, it forms a "dead spot" -- when the starter is stopped at a very specific spot i will not form the magnetic force needed to torn the starter motor. This is a common issue which can be dealt with for a time if you have to save the money to replace the starter. Tapping the starter, or arcing it with a screwdriver makes the inner workings of the starter jump a little, allowing it to move out of the dead spot and kick over as normal, but it is only a temporary fix. Unless you refurbish electronics for a living, it is very unlikely that you will be able to repair the starter on your own, and such a repair takes some time, so you are better off to replace it than try to repair the starter itself.
As long as the starter does not happen to stop in the dead spot, it will work as normal ... but in time the dead spot will spread, causing the issue to worsen. You can keep forcing it to turn with the two tricks you used until you have had the opportunity to earn the money to replace the starter (or until you have a day off to get the repairs done) .. but over time this can cause more damage to other parts of the car, so I recommend replacing the starter as soon as you can.

Sounds to me like the battery hasn't enough charge to turn the engine. Taking the starter off and testing it doesn't require much power as it doesn't have to turn the engine. Check the battery and also that the charging system is charging the battery back up. Alex.

85 bmw starter does not engage it goes zing


probably find that the dog clutch on the end of the starter has given up the ghost,failing that,bmws are critical on the grade of oil used and if you have used a mineral rather than synthetic oil the dog clutch will be gummed up with deposits,sometimes a hot engine flush and new oil(synthetic)will fix it,hope this helps
