I believe that the ratchet mechanism is defective or worn. It will need to be repaired.

Battery charged?,sitting on the seat?, starter or solinoid working? Take out the spark plugs and try turning the engine underneath by using the pulley. Is the oil fresh?

2000 olds alero cranks then makes a metal grinding sound and won't start


You need to have your flywheel: replaced.Your starter motor engages against the fly wheel at the back of the motor. Every time your motor stops it tends to be in the same few positions (just the way things work) so there is more stress on some parts of your fly wheel than others. Because of this the teeth wear out on the fly wheel which means the starter can correctly engage on the fly wheel which is the grinding noise.

Ok this may be a simple fix. it has a high chance that the fly wheel key has sheared, this will cuse the timing to advance and bite your hand with the rope.
remove the pull starter and the cup ontop of the fly wheel, if you look straight down at the fly wheel nut you can see a cut out in the crank and fly wheel they should be aligned up if not it has sheared. use a lever under the fly wheel and put some pressure on to to lever it up then hit the fly wheel oposite side of the lever AWAY from the the magnet. and the fly wheel should pop up. replace the key and of you go..Make sure you use the OEM brigbs and strat key it is made out of alloy. The cause of this is the blade hitting a kerb or somthing hard,

97 Ford Power Stroke, starting problem.


Does the starter engage the drive gear with the action of a solenoid? It may not be pushing (pulling) the gear far enough. There may be a slipping ring gear on the flex-plate. If you pull the starter again, you can try to see if the ring moves in and out or appears to be slipping around on the flex-plate. The flex plate could be loose on the crankshaft. In any case, the engine or the transmission would have to come out. Check the starter engagement before removing the torus and flex-plate.
