Sometimes the problem could be related to a worn flexplate. The points on the teeth wear down, then the distance between the starter gear, and the teeth of the flexplate are too far away.

Pull the starter and have the solenoid action tested
If the pinion moves out before spinning then the [problem will be in the override clutch of the pinion and that means the pinion has to be replaced
check the ring gear for teeth damage as they have been known to be so badly worn that the pinion gear will not engage.

Do you have the correct starter and is it grinding, this sounds like a bad flywheel or wrong starter or even a bad one. look at teeth of flywheel and see if they are damaged. good day

Check your starter motor isn't jammed. Put your car in gear and rock it back and forth, if that isn't it check the starter motor out of the car .

The starter motor will not engage


Hi, Paul the starter drive/Bendix/clutch is a mechanical gear driven component that engages the clutch pack ring gear to turn over the engine. It has an internal mechanism that allows the gear to turn in one direction and once the engine starts allows the drive gear to free spin. If gear free spins in both directions then the drive gear has failed, it is not serviceable and needs to be replaced.

1998 Honda VT 750 C2 Shadow starter spins but doesn't turn the engine


Hi, Anonymous the starter clutch is a separate mechanical gear driven component that is activated by the starter motor, it engages the clutch pack gear or the flywheel gear to turn over the engine. It has an internal mechanism that allows the gear to turn in one "ONE DIRECTION" only and once the engine starts allows the gear to free spin with engine rotation. If the starter gear free spins in "BOTH DIRECTIONS" then the drive gear has failed, it might be serviceable on some models but usually needs to be replaced.

I have a 1999 Gilera Runner 180FXR, New bat 12V 9 amps. Starter turns and spins pinion gear but won't engage starter ring. If it does it turns ver slow or won't turn engine over. In manual it


Yep, not enough amps to engage the starter clutch, and when ti does engage, not enough amps to turn the engine. You need a 12 amp battery.

2011 hyundai sonata won't start. battery seems fine. loud clicking/knocking when i turn the key. would it be the starter?


Unusual for the starter to fail on a one year old car.
You are having it towed to a dealer for warranty repairs, right ?
