On the end of the starter shaft is a nylon gear. Remove the starter and inspect it for damage, maybe stripped off the gear teeth. If that gear is in good shape check the flywheel gear teeth. You can buy a kit for that starter gear. Cheap fix.

2000 GMC Yukon 1500xl 4wd. I replaced the starter relay and now the starter and flywheel are out of sync. The switch panel on dash is back on. How do I get them reset into sync?


the starter and flywheel cannot "unsync" unless you removed the starter and reinstalled it incorrectly! .. the starter pinion is moved "up or forward" on the starter shaft and engages the flywheel when the starter is "engaged".. the flywheel never moves from its factory installed position (unless something catastrophic happened).. the starter pinion always engages unless there is something wrong with the starter

I have a murray 20in. And it won't start its getting gas and firing what is wrong Murray 20in.push mower getting gas and fire but won't start


The kill switch may be mis adjusted. Sometimes the cable stretches and you need to adjust it or shorten the cable.

1997 sable ,new starter turns but does engage


Could be that there were 4 cylinder engines and 6 cylinder engines and you may have the wrong starter. There could be several bendix drives that have thinner or broader gears or that need to go farther into the end bushing. If the end bushing is too long, the bendix will not be able to travel far enough to engage the flywheel.

Tiller won't start


Best advice is to spray some ether in the carb, if that doesn't start it up, then check the spark plug.

1965 mustang starter fires but won't engage flywheel. it is a brand new starter


Doesn't matter. The forks inside the starter may be missing or broke off or bad spring in starter that pushes the gear out. Try new started. Starter may have to be shimmed to make contact with flywheel. Starter may be kicking out but not engaging flywheel.

Starter works fine but won't crank engine. the pick up has to be given a push first before it starts


If the starter is spinning when you try to start but doesn't spin the engine over then you most likely have teeth missing off the flywheel ring gear. The facts that you say you have to push it and then it starts means the flywheel position changes and the starter has good teeth on the flywheel to engage. To confirm this next time the engine won't crank over remove the starter and look inside at the flywheel for missing flywheel teeth.

2000 Chevy s10 manual changed starter still won't start the starter is spinning but the engine won't turn over.


Do you have the correct starter and is it grinding, this sounds like a bad flywheel or wrong starter or even a bad one. look at teeth of flywheel and see if they are damaged. good day

Replaced starter in '93 F-150 6 cyl auto, new starter works but doesn't engage flywheel. Flywheel teeth aren't damaged, can flywheel be adjusted to bring it forward to mesh with starter bendix?


If the starter bendix is working then they gave you the wrong starter. or if yours has the cylinoid mounted on it , this woud be bad. either way you will need to take it back to the store. flywheels can't be adjusted
