The motor turns but will not start. It appears the starter is not engaging the wheel but it does not fire. Is this the starter or a tune up issue?

Why wont my 1995 dodge caravan start , i turn ignition on all normal lights come on the dash as usual and i here fuel pump engage but when i turn the key it wont turn over at all and battery is good a


Check starter motor, give it a smack with a hammer, might turn over after that, this is a sign the stater motor brushes are most likely worn out. Or and check ignition switch below the ignition barrel.

To know for sure you need to test the battery and the solenoid but first reach under the motor and turn the shaft and make sure the motor turns.You can do both at the solenoid First check to see how many volts are coming in to the solenoid then engage the start switch and check to see how many are coming out. then go to the starter and check the cable by testing the voltage at the lug going into the starter. Make sure your starter bolts are tight. If they are not remove the starter and clean where the starter contacts the motor if necessary. If all this checks out and you receive a little more than 12 volts. then it is probably going to be your bendix drive. This is usually a system of two interlacing gears where one travels up other elevating the the starter interlock gear to the fly wheel. First is it traveling up to the fly wheel gear engaging but the shaft is spinning inside the gear. Or is it not traveling at all. either way it's got to go.O7OUT

KTM 530 2009 starter spins but motor will not turn over


Hi, Anonymous the starter clutch is a separate mechanical gear driven component that is activated by the starter motor, it engages the clutch pack gear or the flywheel gear to turn over the engine. It has an internal mechanism that allows the gear to turn in one "ONE DIRECTION" only and once the engine starts allows the gear to free spin with engine rotation. If the starter gear free spins in "BOTH DIRECTIONS" then the drive gear has failed, it might be serviceable on some models but usually needs to be replaced.

Battery is good but when I turn it on it just clicks won't start,maybe after 20 times it starts


Without hearing the sound it makes - it's kind of hard to diagnose.

The engine starting process consists of turning the key to start, the starter motor's rotor moving forward to engage the engine's flywheel, and then the starter motor 's "rotor" spinning until you move the key from "start" to "run". You can hear the starter motor spinning - but one usually can't hear the rotor moving forward to engage the flywheel. As a result, you hear the odd spinning sound - which is the starter rotor spinning. The engine never actually turns over because the rotor never engages the fly wheel. If this is the case, then it is very likely that your starter needs to be checked and / or replaced.

Good luck!

My van will not turn over,i thought it was the starter cause it wasnt starting it will turn over but not start.so i put a new battery in it cause i was told the old one wasnt kicking out enough amps.and it...


If the starter motor spins and does not engage, thump the case of the starter motor with a piece of 4 x 2 or a lump hammer handle. If that fixes it, the fix will be temporary. Take the motor off and lubricate the bearings, paying attention to the dog wheel slider.

I replaced the starter on a 1994 toyota camry. Everything appears to be reconnected correctly, but all I can year when I turn the key is the sound of the starter turning. I assume it isn't engaging...


when the ignition switch is turned to the starting postion the motor should turn over if it dont then the starter is either not installed properly or the starter drive is sticking or bad if the starter is not engaging with the flywheel there could be a good chance that the teeth on the flywheel are broke off. i would pull the starter back off and use a mirror to check the teeth on the flywheel.

Solenoid clicks will not engage 4000KW Onan


4000 kW is a very big generator. I asume that your is 4000W = 4 kW.
If - with electrical start it should be MicroQuiet 4000.
Never mind by all types of electricaly started engines this will mean:

If by "not engage" you mean that solenoid only clicks, but neither the starter motor is turning, nor the bendix wheel is engaged to wlywheel. This may mean that battery voltage is low, in order to engage the bendix and make its power contact, or the bendix is mechanicaly blocked.
If by "not engage" you mean that solenoid clicks, the starter motor is not turning, but the bendix wheel is engaged to wlywheel. This may mean that the bendix relay power contacts are bad or starter motor collector or brushes are bad.
If by "not engage" you mean that solenoid clicks, the starter motor is turning with a scratching sound, the bendix wheel is partially or not engaged to wlywheel. This may mean that the bendix throw out lever is bent or broken, or the wheels on bendix and flywheel are worn out..

Husqvarna Z6127 won't start after running 30 minutes.


If the starter motor is spinning, the problem is probably the starter motor solenoid. It is basicly an electric piston mounted on the starter that engages the starter motor pinion gear to the flywheel.
