If the pinion moves up then the solenoid is fine, but if the starter does not spin then the starter motor is bad. Will need new starter.

3 connect jumper cable black to battery neg lug.then other end to starter casing (mount)

1992 subaru legacy starter wont engage fully and makes a loud grinding noise


Sounds like it is not toughing 100% and making full gear contact with the fly-wheel. Replace starter or the misalignment can burr the flywheel causing rounding and subsequent damage to the device.

very good post, few like it.
this is the starter free spinning
the solenoids job is the engage the teeth the fly wheel (ring gear)

the pinon shaft in starter is dirty, clean it (easy fix)
bad starter solenoid. get a new starter , most solenoids cost more.
your suspisons are dead on.

Sears Garden tractor does not start, how to i test to see if it is the starter or solenoid or what?


Try turning it over with the spark plug removed. If it now turns over the starter is weak and needs to be replaced. Also check the oil level. Too much oil will will lock it up.

Sierra 1500 wont turn over 350. locked up???


Have the battery tested for a dead cell. It may test at 12 volts but that doesn't mean there isn't a dead cell. Also, if the motor has good compression you probably shouldn't be able to turn it over by hand at the fly wheel. Maybe an old school motor with V belt, but not a newer motor with all those accessories attached to the front.

I have a 2009 CRV, and a bout once every 10 start ups when I turn the key to start the car I will hear a squirting sound, and it sounds like it is coming from the ignition. When this happens I generally...


Without hearing it I would only be guessing, however I believe starter solenoid is a good guess.
When you turn the key the first position it applies power to the vehicles ignition coil and other operational components. The second position applies power to the starter solenoid which moves the starter gear against the fly wheel so the starter motor can crank the engine to start the combustion process. If the solenoid does not move the small gear against the big gear you will hear the starter motor running with no resistance producing a high pitch whine. Some of the gears could be missing on the fly wheel but it would not start unless you physically moved the vehicle forward to manually move the fly wheel.
Therefore, I would have the starter (starter and solenoid are usually together) checked or replaced. If you have some mechanical knowledge you could do it yourself with minimal tools. I believe turning the key back is not helping you. You just need to turn off the ignition and try to start it again. Sooner or later the solenoid will fail completely and not work at all. I would not want to be stranded so I would fix it soon but it could work intermittently for a while.

THE FLY WHEEL WONT TURN WHEN I TRY TO START THE BIKE IS THE STRARTER CLUTCH BEHIND THE FLY WHEEL WORN. IS IT A BIG JOB TO REMOVE THE FLY WHEEL


If you hand-turn the flywheel, and it fails to turn, it might be that your engine is 'frozen". Remove the starter-motor and use a sizable flat-end screw-driver to try to turn the flywheel, just to be sure! The starter-motor is behind the flywheel, and if it is worn, you should get at least a 'crink' sound to indicate that the starter-motor pulls out and spins a bit. Yes, it is a big job removing the flywheel. You must have oil in the engine at all times!

You may need to shim the starter and I would have the starter tested.It is not uncommon to purchase a faulty elecrical part of any type from a part store.
