I have had the same problem from time to time. I turn the ignition OFF and then manually rotate the engine as far as possible in both directions to free things up a bit. Once the starter gets a "running start" at the compression, it will generally start cranking.

Make sure you have a good, charged battery. Clean all the connections on the battery, the starter, and the ground (black) wire on the frame. If it still does not work, the starter my have an internal short. Hope this helps.

1999 Pontiac Sunfire 5 speed won't start. Replaced spark plugs and checked ignition coil (fine). Sounds like it wants to turn over but makes a "whining" noise. Please assist. Thank you!


Is the engine turning over with the key in the start position? If the engine is not spinning over and you hear a whining noise, the starter is not engaging the flywheel. If the engine is turning over with the starter engaged, the engine has most likely jumped time that creates low or no compression which results in the whining noise.

What would cause a 2005 vstar classic 1100 not start when the starter is engaged and why would it sound as if the engine lost its compression and how would i go about finding out what the proublem is


Hi, Anonymous 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.

No compression


When it "whines" is the engine actually turning over? If not, your starter is not engageing the flywheel and is just spinning. could be some missing teeth on either the starter gear or flywheel.

Bobcat starter stays engaged


Trace the wire from the "st" on the ignition switch to the small post on the starter relay or solinoid. If you find another wire going off from there follow it to the diode. It is likely covered with insulating sleeve at one end of the wiring harness. It is about 3/8" in dia and 3/8 long.Please note the colored band at the end which denotes the cathode.It must be replaced with one going the same way..
Hope this helps, Robert

The engine dies if I don't keep the ignition turned forward. Any ideas?


Pull the distributor cap off and watch the rotor as you crank the motor. If the rotor doesn't turn your timing belt is broken. If the Engine is actually firing while you have the starter engaged but dies immediately when you let off even when you press the accelerator check to make sure the starter isn't staying engaged in the flywheel as that will kill the motor and burn your starter out. If all is good so far do a compression check. If you don't have good compression on all cylinders your engine maybe firing but with no compression will not run.
