you dont ... you get a new starter motor because your cylinoid is busted ..... == A better answer is you let it sit for half an hour or more while the starter cools down. It will start again when the engine cools down. The starter heats up from starting, the engine conducting heat, and from being next to the exhaust manifold. Cheap starter rebuilders do not leave enough room for thermal expansion. You have a rebuilt starter. ALWAYS insist on a BOSCH starter! You do need a new starter. I went through 2 starters before I found this out. Automatic transmission starters suffer from heat-soak, especially as they age. VW knew about this, issued a technical bulletin about it and installed hot-start relay kits on affected cars. You can easily do it yourself: ; be sure the heat-shield is in-place as well.

If your 91 Honda Accord will not start and the battery is new what could be the cause of the problem?

It could either be a starter gone bad or it could be a bad cylinoid. If the starter motor does not spin that would cause the engine not to turn over. The best thing is to buy the cylinoid first then if that does not work replace the starter motor. It never hurts to replace both.

Why would a Chevy 350 stop starting No clicks chugs whines - nothing Battery seems good lights fans radio ect all seem to be as strong as ever Truck ran ten minutes ago and now nothing?

check your ign. fuse. sounds like the starter cylinoid, but first make sure the battery is not dead(good head lights)check connections for corrosion and snug fittings. the cylinoid is located on the starter.the red wire from the battery goes to it.the problem could also be in the find where the problem is you will need to test power to the s termanal at the cylinoid with the switch in the "start position" if you have voltage when trying to start will indicate a bad cylinoid no voltage at start is a bad switch or wireing to the starter.

How do know if your starter cylinoid needs a shim?

You shim the starter motor if there is inadequate clearance between the starter drive and the ring gear. You can check the clearance by prying the starter drive out to the ring gear with a screwdriver to see if the gears mesh properly.

The starter is always by your transmission flywheel the cylinoid on the starter has to jump out to the flywheel to turn the motor. Also you can go to auto zone web site to find out locations for parts on your vehicle. Good luck.

How do you trip the cylinoid in the starter on a 1994 Geo Tracker Once the car has been driven a long distance then turned off the starter will not do anything Turn the key and nothing Help please?

Hi, I can relate to you what I had to do. I took the tire iron and banged on the soelnoid while my wife turned the key. I worked for me all the time. I learned it from a to truck driver that came on a AAA call and he showed me what to do until I replaced, I had it replaced because it was a real pain job to replace the starter. I found a good starter at a local junkyard. I hope this is timely for you and good luck Steve H.

How do you test the starter on a 2002 Nissan Altima Car won't start has new Battery and lights work.?

Test it by finding the cylinoid, using something metalscrew driver, etc. and cross it on the hot and negative posts of the cylinoid, if the car starts the cyliniod is bad,if it does nothing, the starter is bad or a wire is loose..NOTE : If car is manual, (5 or 6 speed) make SURE car is in neutral and the parking (emergency) brake is ON !! or else the car migh "jump" "go" and run over you while doing this...

How many wires go the the positive side of the starter on an 87 Chevy truck 4X4?

If it's anything like earier 80's there will be 2. One from the battery and one from the harness. Then there will be a ignition hot to the small post on the starter which operates the cylinoid (SP?) I believe the hot side is about a 10-12 guage(red) and the cyl. is a 12-14 and is also red.

Reasons a 1996 Eldorado wont turn over with a new starter half a tank of gas and a new battery?

Have your Cylinoid examined, or checked. That runs from your battery, and is pretty much the switch between battery and starter. If that goes out, nothing will happen, sometimes you wont even hear a click. If fails to start still, check your fuel pump, or fuel presure regulator (if it's FI)

What should you try next when your 92 Ford Explorer only clicks when you turn the key and you already know the battery solenoid and starter are good?

Make sure all you connections are good between the starter battery and cylinoid. Please make sure also that you check the one single wire that leads to the starter. We have a 94 Ford Aeostar and we had the same problem but luckily we checked it out before replacing anything and come to find out the wire came off of the starter. That would be the best thing I can tell you.
