SOURCE: ford courier 4x4 ute starting problem

Hi,

If I understand you right, the problem is at certain times the engine will not crank, that is turn over when you turn they ignition key to START. And at times it will start and run normally.

Might it be that the issue is with the starter system. The starter system is initiated at the ignition switch when the key is turned to start. At this point, the ignition switch then provides +12VDC to a starter relay. The relay is but a remote switch with slightly higher amperage capacity. The starter relay then engages and supplies +12VDC to the staring solenoid. The starting solenoid then performs two (2) functions. It provides the switching action (hundreds amps) from the battery heavy cable to the actual starter motor. The solenoid likewise pushes a small pinion gear along the shaft of the starter motor to engage the ring gear. The ring gear is of course on the edge of the flywheel which in turn is attached to the crankshaft.

Starter system problems could be corrected by:
1. check battery, battery cables and connections;
2. charge the battery if required;
3. clean brushes and guides of brush holders of the starter motor;
4. clean the commutator and commutator segments;
5. check/replace the armature or field coils if determined to be defective;
6. in some extreme cases it could be the drive pinion or the flywheel gear ring is defective.
7. often it is the big switch that the solenoid activates that looses contacts causing no +12V internally to the motor.
8. Most likely would be a defective starter relay or the IGN switch itself. Relative to this, you might try and check the connectors/terminals and electrical joints.

In the picture below, the upper portion is the starter solenoid while the one below it is the actual starter.

Given the amount of work to overhaul a starter, you might consider just replacing it.

This of course assuming that all other vital components of the car are working.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Sounds like you have blocked fuel supply, check filters.

SOURCE: Everything works electric wise, so

Everything works so it's not the battery huh? You'd better have the battery over to a shop that can test it under load before spending any more time or money. A friend of mine asked me to fix his car's starting problem that sounds just like yours. Before I started troubleshooting he said, "I just replaced the battery a couple of months ago so I know it's good." Well, he buys a starter and I put it in. Same problem. I take the battery back to Checkers, they test it and it fails. They give a new battery and tadaaaa, problem fixed. Too bad they wouldn't take the starter back though. They would have had I not cranked the engine. New batteries can be defective too. Don't take shortcuts.

01 ford laser has starting issues, turn key all i get is reds, wait a couple of seconds try again and it starts fine, This can go on for a while sometimes. Dont think its starter motor dont get noise


If the commutator (part that contacts the brushes) has a short, it will only energize half of the starter motor then stop. (single "click") just enough to spin the motor past the short, or when it gets worse, repeatedly turning the key, will get you repeated single clicks until past the short, then starts fine

Check with your local parts store, they may check your starter for free, you are looking for excessive amp draw

2001 Ford Escape. Sometimes, after sitting 4 or 5 hours, engine turns but won't start. After a short wait and trying again it starts right up. It hasn't shut down while driving, yet. Plugged in a diag


Try turning the key on for two seconds, don't turn to the start position yet, then turn it off, then back on for two seconds, then try to start it. It sounds like you are losing fuel pressure and by cycling the key, you will be re-pressurizing the system. It's usually caused by a faulty fuel pressure regulator that is not holding pressure properly.
This will not set a diagnostic code usually,and on the rare occasion it does, the code will read as a "lean" problem.......not enough fuel

2001 Saturn L300 will not start


If it turns over when you turn the ignition key and you have power. Check too see if it is getting gas. The fuel pump could not have enough pressure to start the engine. When you first turn you key on listen and see if you hear the pump runs for a couple of seconds. If no sound probably fuel pump. Do a pressure test first.

I have a 2001 Lincoln town car, executive, 4.6 motor... I usually hear the fuel pump hum when I turn key on, not so now... Now when I turn key to start and wait a few seconds, I don't hear fuel pump when...


It does sound like the fuel pump. You could try changing fuel filters first. You should never run your car with less than a quarter of a tank, it sucks dirt particles off the bottom of the tank. It messes up fuel injectors as well. Always run a Lucas fuel treatment at every oil change. Good Luck.
