Check condition of battery. Have a load test done to test for dead cell. Remove battery terminals and clean both posts and terminals with sandpaper until you see shiny metal. Check and tighten all terminals to the starter.

My car is having trouble starting up the starter is making fkat buzzing sound any ideas?

Sounds like a slipping pinion gear. Remove starter solenoid assembly and put on the kitchen table, old newspapers for protection are optional. The pinion gear is the one on the end of the starter motor shaft that is driven forward to engage with e toothed edge of the flywheel. It should free wheel in one direction and lock solid when reversed. The locking clutch mechanism its what supplies the motor's rotation to the flywheel to crank the engine over. If the pinion gear clutch is slipping the motor makes a whizzing sound as the shaft spins within it. You can buy a new pinion gear cheaply. Whilst the motor is out buy a refurbishment kit ($10) for the solenoid consisting of contact striker plates and plunger . This preventative measure will avoid any hassle in this department for many years.

2001 Ford F350 SuperDuty, Starts intermitently. Will start but then won't start the next time just a click at the starter relay.

I have also suffered this problem. The starter motor has a component called BENDEX. It is the part that pushes the starting pinion forward and backward so that it engages with the flywheel when you want to start. And when you release the starter, it retracts the pinion and it disengages from the flywheel. As the flywheel is much larger than the pinion, if it does not disengage the starter motor will get burnt as it would be subjected to a very high RPM by the flywheel. So, get the bendex repaired. If it can not be repaired for some reason then replace with a new one.

Golf sometimes no power to starter motor

I would check the ignition switch. You can unplug the small wire at the starter, with a test light check and see if power is at the plug when you turn the key to the start postion. If there is power there, you may have a bad starter solenoid. I've had to replace a few on my VW, (86 Scirocco, 91 Jetta GLI)

Starting problem with 1995 VW Golf TDi

if there is a clicking noise, its probably the solenoid on the starter. that unit pushes the starter motor forward and also connects the live of the starter.
