Remove the spark plugs and thn operate the starter motor and see if theres improvement in the rotation of it.(starter)
Best would be to check the starter motor and probabley may need an overhaul.
Not bad to check the positive and negative battery cables connections.Positive tothe solenoid and the negative to the frame.
Hope this helps!

13.5 hp Tecumseh engine. Why is it hard start and slow to spin?

Patrick, be sure battery and starter are good. all ground and hot wires are good. sometimes a bad connection can cause a mower to spin slow or not at all.could be many things. but take the spark plug out and if it spins fast out but spins in a bind or on a compression stroke slows or stops with the plug in, could be valves need adjusted.

XV1100 Starter does not engage when trinig to start engin

sorry didn't actually see the post before my first comment, if it is only when the bike is warm or hot but not over heated I would suspect the same thing, faulty starter. "replace or rebuild"

I'm trying to remove my starter on my 2005 pontaic sunfire. I have removed three bolts and cant seem to get the starter to budge. i've searched as much as I can see but I cant seem to see why this is still...

If all of the mounting bolts are definitly removed, then you'll want to make sure the batt (-) cable is disconnected, then either use your belts/pulleys or a socket on the Crankshaft main bolt to carefully rotate the motor (same rotation as normal) & listen for any binding & this should make sure the teeth on the flywheel/starter ring have disengaged from the starter teeth. With todays cars, tight fit is the standard & if the solenoid is holding the bendix forward as if starting, this should help to release it or loosen the bind. Hopefully you don't have a flywheel problem. If after rotating the engine, you can't get it loose, tap the end of the starter just a hair at an angle to loosen & then again from the oppsite angle to free up the starter from the mounting area. It does have to come out fairly straight due to the mounting flange but hopefully the taps will free it up if it is stuck.

Never a bad idea to look at the new part, or one at a parts store that is identical to better understand the exact fit.

Good Luck

V Star 1100 - after cruise speeds engine rpm very slow to retun to idle after letting off throttle.

Check to be sure the cables are not binding.
LUBE those cables!

You can buy a device that is simple and not expensive to lube the cables.
My V Star-1100 custom did exactly the same thing after about 4 years.
Seems the standard service package does not include lubing the cables!

After a generous lube the throttle cables and sticking slow return vanished.
Pleasant surprise how easy the throttle and clutch cables worked too!

Good luck!

Sometimes i try to start my bike and the starter acts like it is not getting enough juice from the battery. i on numerous occasions charged the battery and it is fine. What can i do, to make the problem go...

If you are SURE the batt is good and holding a strong charge,,, and no dead cell(s) ??
Did you have the batt tested ?
FYI; Batteries only last an average of a few years..
IF that is not it - and IF the starter is binding a little to tightly - you can try a few starter shimms.. It will back the starter away from the flywheel slightly and not bind so hard against it..
Dont put too many shimms in at first.. Start off little by little & see if it corrects it..

Have new proper batt.Have new starter celenoid,new

Remove spark plug and attempt to crank. If it turns faster (without compression) it may be valve adjustment. If it still turns over slowly with plug out check battery ground for tightness to mower body. If the ground is good check the starter by removing battery and atttaching jumper cables to pos and neg battery terminals first, then the pos jumper to starter terminal (where red wire attaches). Then touch the neg jumper to a good engine ground (I use shroud bolt). Be careful as this last connection will cause some arcing. If it still cranks slowly with the plug out, it is probably the starter.

New starter good batt. only clicks wont turn over 1995 montero

The Batt does not have a full charge or it is the wrong cranking AMP's for the car... find out if it is the right Batt and also that it is put on a "slow charge" over night or at least 6 hr's

Starter turns slow

poor connection or ground cables can look good and be bad just like me! also the sarter could be the problem if the relay isnt carrying enough amps when the starter engages
