You have a bad starter one way clutch inside the motor. You fixed the external problem now you have to fix the internal one. If the starter motor is turning but the motor is not, then the one way clutch is slipping on the large starter gear next to the flywheel. You will have to replace both the one-way clutch attached to the flywheel and the large starter gear that fits into it to fix the problem. The contact surface on the gear has become rough or chattered and is no longer smooth , so the clutch will not grab it hard enough to turn the motor over and start it.

Motor wont start

do you hear the fuel pump working? and did you check the fuses? also check and see if the fuel cut of switch is on. it was typically located in the trunk by the hinges that hold th trunk or on the side but look in your owners manuel or google it. i would guess fuel pump in honesty.

Just bought a 98 intrigue and drove it this morning, it has been starting fine and shut it off and now wont start, just a clicking sound but don't think its the battery. any ideas on what to check

Hi to me if the clicking noise is coming from the engine then this points towards the startor motor packing up one thing you can try to get it started is give the starter motor a few hard hits with a hammer doing this sometimes shock the selenoid into working again but dont rely on this lasting long term as it could leave you stuck

the best option is to get the starter replaced as soon as you can

to locate the starter follow the live red lead from the battery this goes to the selenoid on the starter and the big round thing next to the small round part is the startor motor give the bigger part a few taps with a hammer doing this should get it started

let me know if you have any problems

Yamaha FZR600 1991 - Spark plugs fire but bike doesn't start

no, i leave mine on all the time! unless you have a sticking float ...that might let fuel creep into the cylinder over night and cause flooding...turn kill switch off, choke closed, throttle open full max, then crank for ten seconds then let set for about a minute to let starter cool down then see if it starts. if that doesn't work then try to push start it..if that doesnt work then take it back to the repair shop.

My 1995 chevy corsica ran fine one day and the next morning wouldnt start. It trys to turn over but wont start. Spark plugs and coil packs are fine. Fuel filter is fine. What could cause this?

Try tapping on your PCM behind your glove box,also are you getting fuel pressure and a good blue spark at the plugs when cranking the engine?
