Starter not working all of the time

Maybe one out of five times when I try starting my van, the starter doesn't engage. Like the bendix isn't working. I do get a spinning sound. I'd like to fix it because Im afraid it will quit completly.

Normally when it spins it is the bendix or a problem related to it. Yes replacing or repairing the starter is the thing to do.

When trying to start my car its making a whinning noise and wont crank what could it be?


If the starter is spinning and not engaging the flywheel to start the car, suspect a defective starter drive clutch and starter replacement will be required

Starter not egaging right?


There are two types of starter, a bendix gear type,and a pre engaged type, neither should rotate with the engine running, with a pre engaged starter the gear is connected to the flywheel but when the engine starts a solinoid pulls the gear out of the flywheel, with a bendix type, the starter motor spins the bendix shaft which in turn winds the gear up and into the flywheel ring gear.

When I engage the ign key to start the eng., I get a clicking sound. My guess is the Bendix? I've had to turn the key 2-3 times for the past year before the engine will turn over & start.


sorry to tell ya this sounds like the starter is bad , not too bad though only two bolts and two wires to change it (once you access it) the click you hear is the bendix solinoid clicking in but the switch inside the solinoid is not giving power to the starter motor, the telltale for this is it did'nt happen overnight , you may be able to get it started once or twice more by having someone hold key to start posisition and sharply striking starter with WOODEN end of hammer handle but that's only gonna let you get it started enough to get it someplace dry to replace starter

Truck has electrical power but won't turn over. I think I can hear the starter solenoid engaging. Not sure. where do I start trouble shooting?


Safety first!--Make sure you're in park & brake on-- Try shorting across the starter terminals with a screwdriver,if the bendix kicks in & nothing spins,remove the starter & put in bench vice ,(or hold down securely), & jump with cables.--REMEMBER POLARITY--If the starter spins you are in deep *******---something in the motor is probably locked up.(If the starter doesn't spin get a new one.)

88F250 4x4 5.8L FI 5 speed. A friend has this & the starter went out. I replaced it & the solenoid. No big deal right? I returned it & the next day he called me & told me that the...


Its a solenoid...it engages the bendix and truck starts...bendix should retract because power to it gets shut off by ignition switch going to "run".

Only way bendix would stay engaged or get a signal to keep turning ???
Bad contacts in ignition switch...maybe ??
Start relay in under hood power distribution panel has hot or welded contacts ?

I've gotta think about this one...hope this gives some help...

Turn switch on and all the lights work but the starter wont engage


If the starter wont turn...Id check / replace starter solonoid.
If the starter turns but doesn't engage the flywheel...I'd check / replace the bendix.
If starter checks good and bendix is good...I'd look at the teeth on the flywheel.

Hope this helps...

75 sportster starter just spins. 1st time it did it I tapped starter with rubber mallet and started. No problems for weekbut now doing same thing, and tapping doesn't help starter just spins...


If the starter spins but the engine does not turn, it's not your starter. It is your starter drive or Bendix on the starter shaft. Disconnect the battery. Take the outer primary cover off. Take the wires off the starter solenoid, remove the pin, cup and spring on the inside of the primary, and remove the solenoid. With this off, you can remove the starter shaft. Clamp the starter shaft in a vise with soft jaws on it. You don't want to scar your starter shaft. You'll see a round thing on the end of the shaft with two flats on it. Use a wrench to take this off. IT HAS LEFT HANDED THREADS. Slide the old Bendix off and put the new one on. Put a drop of Loctite 271 red on the threads and put the nut back on the end and tighten. Put your bake back together in reverse of how you took it apart. When you buy the replacement Bendix, but a good one. Do not buy the Chinese version, they're junk.

Good Luck
