My truck motor wont turn over? The started is kicking in ' but the motor does not turn to start?


You say your starter is kicking in..is it spinning and not turning the engine over? If so you have a problem with the flywheel teeth or starter gears not engaging..if no spin just a click..your battery is to weak to turn engine or you starter selonoid or starter needs replaced...good luck..

Electric Starter spins but does not engage. Could it be the solenoid?


Its likely the starter motor itself having worn teeth or is seized. The solenoid takes the electrical signal and engages the starter which kicks over the flywheel. If the solenoid goes out, you'd hear a click and the starter motor would not spin.

When turning key starter turns over but not engaging


if starter just spins and does not engage flywheel. it is usually the starter solinoid not kicking it out. when energized the solinoid, if good. kicks the starter gear into flywheel to turn engine over to start it. good-day !

Starter spins but will not engage


this could be a few problems that cause this,

1. your battery could be weak and not have enough juice to engage the starter solenoid

2. the bendix could be messed up

3. this is probaly the most common problem, the starter solenoid went out

the best course of action would be to have your battery load tested, and if its fine, replace the starter

2000 chevy impala, starter spins but does not engage


if the starter spins but does not engage flywheel. then its the starter solinoid thats bad. its on top of starter, when key is turned to start, the solinoid is activated, and it pushes the gears out to make contact with flywheel to start vehicle. so the solinoid just spins with out kicking out to flywheel. change solinoid or get another starter. have a good day !

I HAVE A 97 F250 7.3 DIESEL. THE STARTER IS NEW BUT WHEN I TRY TO START IT IT SOUNDS LIKE THE STARTER IS KICKING IN AND TURNING BUT THE MOTOR IS NOT TURNING. WOULD THE GLOWPLUG RELAY CAUSE THIS?


Don't think so. It sounds like the starter is mis-aligned and not engaging the flywheel. When the starter spins, the gear on the end is supposed to move out and engage the flywheel. Sometimes the springs are bad or there is too much friction on the spiral shaft, but if this is a new starter, more than likely it is mis-aligned.

My 00 impala 3.4 doesnt start.i took the starter off and checked it out but its fine. when the key turns the starter spins but wont engage with the motor.i have a brand new battery,all cables are connected...


Does the starter kick out and spin normally out of the car? Have you checked the condition of the flywheel? Ususally the starter doesnt turn until the solenoid kicks the gear out to engage the flywheel. Check if the gear on the starter is bad, it should slip one way, and not the other.
