Question about 2005 Yamaha WR 450 F

1 Answer

STARTER NOISE When hot my WR450 is making a screaming noise when the starter is engaged and then flattens the battery as the engine turns slowly and then will not turn over. When cold it seems ok but still a slight noise. Sounds like the starter bearing grabbing the shaft when hot ??????????????

Hi,

The starter is deffinately 'dragging'.
Chances are that it has dropped a bush.
I'm not sure if Yamaha does a servie kit for the starter, but your local dealer will give you that info.

Most good auto electricians should be able to assist you.

To test the starter, place a multi metre across the battery terminals(the battery must be fully charged). Crank the motor and check how many amps the starter is drawing. Anything more than 30 amps is a sure sign of a failing starter.

Good luck

Jon

1999 Pontiac Sunfire 5 speed won't start. Replaced spark plugs and checked ignition coil (fine). Sounds like it wants to turn over but makes a "whining" noise. Please assist. Thank you!


Is the engine turning over with the key in the start position? If the engine is not spinning over and you hear a whining noise, the starter is not engaging the flywheel. If the engine is turning over with the starter engaged, the engine has most likely jumped time that creates low or no compression which results in the whining noise.

Replaced the starter and truck still won't start just makes the clunking noise


The klunk you hear is the noenoid/bendix engaging but iseems power is lacking to turn the starter and therefore the engine..Some suggestions. Disconnect battery cables. Using small steel brush or a made to order brush, brush posts and cable clamps to remove corrosion. Reconnect and try. Also check the hot battery lead(red) at the starter for itghtness.

How can you tell if your starter is goin bad


A bad starter will kill a battery real quick. If you can find a DC amp-meter compare it to factory specs, or similar car starters. A bad starter will make a grinding noise, or give false tries where the starter spins free without engaging the motor. Of course, a bad starter will not spin at all, just make sure the relay is working.

Starter makes whinning noise on 97 camarro .battery is fully charged and starter tested positive at parts store.


Make sure that starter wears a condom.

If you meant that the starter makes a high-pitched whine but does not turn the engine, that starter is bad. More specifically, its drive (the "Bendix") is bad.

If the starter makes a screeching noise as it turns the engine, like it is working too hard and is irritated about the situation, you need to shim the starter. There are shims available at the parts store that fit around the mounting bolts, between the starter and the block. They are used to ensure that the starter drive gear teeth are not too close to the ring gear. If they are too close, the starter has to work much harder as it forces the teeth to mesh.

If you meant that the starter makes a whining noise for a short while after you start the engine, don't worry. Many starters do that.

If you meant that the starter makes a loud whine constantly after you have started the engine, it is staying engaged. It is either bad and that is the source of the problem, or there is another problem (like incorrect shimming) that caused it to stay engaged, and it is now bad. The same gear reduction that allows a small electric motor to spin a big heavy engine can work in reverse if the one-way clutch in the starter drive goes bad, and the high speeds that the starter guts would be subjected to if this happened would lead to self-destruction.

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.
