The solenoid in the started may not be projecting the plunger far enough to reach the ring gear. This would make a spinning sound, but not a grinding sound. If it's grinding, the started gear is worn out.

If you can remove your starter, it can easily be bench tested at an auto parts store and the plunger can be watched. If it dosen't shoot out of the solenoid far enough or not at all, the solenoid is bad. The starter will need to be replaced unless you can find a solenid seperetly, which is unlikely in newer cars.

1985 Honda aero nb50m won't start. When I try to start it the engine makes no sound to indicate its trying to crank up. All I get is the sound of the starter spinning. Battery is good. Please help!


If you starter is turning with a high spin sound then your starter is bad or you have a flat spot on your fly wheel. Sometimes you can take a hammer and tap on the starter to get to turn again. If you
have a flat spot and you get past it then you will most likely to keep starting it for awhile until you get to that spot again.

Starter good but still won't crank,


remove the starter and check the condition of the ring gear and pinion teeth. Any burrs on either makes it hard for the pinion to engage the fly wheel a split second before the armature starts to spin.

You need to have your flywheel: replaced.Your starter motor engages against the fly wheel at the back of the motor. Every time your motor stops it tends to be in the same few positions (just the way things work) so there is more stress on some parts of your fly wheel than others. Because of this the teeth wear out on the fly wheel which means the starter can correctly engage on the fly wheel which is the grinding noise.

My starter spins but but doesn't engage the fly wheel. Solenoid or starter?


starter, take out and try across battery and it should whirr and jump out as if connecting with flywheel, if no spray the whole starter with WD40 inside and leave overnight. worked for me.

Car starts but sometimes makes a whirling noise. I was told it was the starter


sounds like the starter is not disengaging the fly wheel quickly like it should when you turn the key the starter cog connects upto a fly wheel that has teeth all around it when the teeth of starter cog connect between teen on wheel it spins it to crank your car then goes back to starter if you hold your key on after starting the noise you hear is the starter cog(teeth ) still engaged in wheel if this is the sound it needs to be serviced not neccassarily replaced

You need to pull the starter out and check the drive gear. If the drive gear is no good you will have to replace the starter. Make sure the cogs on the fly wheel are okay. If the fly wheel is damaged you will have to replace the fly wheel.
