Question about Upgradeyourauto 2008-2012 Chevy Malibu no Passenger Keyhole Chrome Door Handle
Starter is brand new and yet it won't engage it will spin, no issue with fly wheel engine has been spun by hand, battery died on pre start as issue with fuel was presant, then charged battery, check all relay's and fuse with test light power on all, still have a no engage issue with new starter ?
Look at the both starters & see if the teeth are the same
Same numbers of teeth & the same pitch of tooth,
as far as engagement goes
I read in Motor or Motor Age which are professional
trade magazines, that is a problem when changing
It should not be on a new one, but can,as those parts fit
Loose the test light & use a volt meter (always)
What happened to the OE Starter in just 3 years or so?
Did you test it before removing it? (the old one)
Does the starter work out of the car?
When you turn the engine is the flywheel running true,
not wobbling ,bent or loose on its bolts?

Testimonial: "the old starter tested fine and the new one as well, it does engage out side of the vehicle but not when installed, vehicle stalled then the battery died, after charging the battery the starter was not engaging to the fly wheel just spinning all three starters are doing this, the teeth are all the same and count the same, every thing is pointing to fly wheel is broke but I have turned engine over by hand full 360 and bumped starter every 90 degrees, still no contact, i am guessing the gcm has caused interference issue with solenoid but I cant test that part with my equipment, but also had a stalling issue before this, reset ecm by key on for 15 minutes then off for 30 seconds then tried to start and this was when the starter acted up, cranked fine when trying before battery died, battery now fully charged and still no contact to fly wheel, as for the fly wheel running true, the engine wont crank over so I wouldnt know, the starter is in front of engine so no reason to get under car, besides cant see the bolts if trans is in the way"
Try new starter
