This CAN happen if your battery is weak or starter is damaged and the "Bendix" is not working properly.

Read up how the Bendix is supposed to work to understand the principle. Search Bendix starter on google.

We can only guess what brand and model you have.

Starter motor/engine turnover

Check the alignment of the starter gear when it engages the flywheel. It may be going in too tight, or at an angle. It could be binding the starter.

One day my 1994 aspire will start fine the next it wont how can i fix this?

If I understand correctly the starter motor turns but does not cause the engine to turn over. If this is the case then the ring gear on the flywheel or flexplate is worn out, or the teeth on the starter motor are worn out. The starter gear does not engage the flywheel. With the starter removed the teeth of the flywheel can be viewed. turn the motor over by hand and look for worn spots; the gear teeth will be noticably shorter. If you find worn spots then the transmission will have to be removed to replace the ring gear. Another possibility is the starter is not pulling in correctly, thus the gears would not engage.

Motor hangs will not turnover until hand turn flywheel

Hi there,

Same symptoms occur in vehicles from time to time. It was your 'hand turn the flywheel' that made me lean toward this diagnosis.

Although You have not supplied the make/model I can make a few assumptions. The symptoms you describe sound like a worn relay/solenoid supplying power to the starter motor.

When the contact surfaces are at the end of their usable life, less and less of the 'cold cranking amps' get past them. So instead of freely flowing to the starter, the power is bottlenecked.

Check what ever mechanism your generator employs to provide starting power.

If you found this to be useful, please take a moment to rate.

Best regards
