Your engine does not crank when you turned on the engine but when you connect the solenoid to the battery the engine cranks?

Does the starter turn over the timing chain?
The starter turns the flywheel at the back of the engine. When the flywheel turns the whole engine turns. The timing chain is on the other end at the front of the engine. It is connected to the crankshaft and camshaft (s). So indirectly yes it does. If the whole engine is turned but the timing chain doesn't, there is a problem. Probably a broken timing chain.
I have replaced the starter on my 1991 S10 but it still won't start could it be a problem with the crank sensor?
Then why did you replace a perfectly good starter? ALWAYS test old parts and know what you're doing BEFORE you start throwing new parts at a problem. Find out WHY it isn't starting. Does the starter engage and turn the engine? IF it does, then the starter is probably fine. If not, check the starter, battery, electrical connections, ignition switch and neutral safety switch. If the starter has ALWAYS engaged and turned the engine, you should not have changed the starter in the first place; instead, you should be finding out what's wrong.

What causes a slow cranking on a truck?
I had the same problem. I had been using a very poor battery that was almost flat all of the time. All battery connections turned out to be in good order, worried about the engine begining to seize up hbut found it turned freely by hand. the problem turned out to be the starter motor that had broken down due to constant use of a poor battery condition. Please check your battery condition, connections, that engine turns freely and your starter motor. A lot of garages do a start and charge check very cheaply.

What could the problem be if the stereo stays on after the truck is turned off.?
What causes the starter not to engage when the key is turned on in a 1992 Lincoln?
If there is complete silence when the key is turned, try tapping the solenoid on the starter with a hammer. Don't laugh. I have found this to be the solution in several cases. This is sure proof that the starter solenoid is the problem. You will want to install a new starter which comes with a new solenoid before you get stranded.

Asked in Honda Prelude SI
Why does your starter keep turning over when the car is turned off?
My 94 Chevrolet S10 will not start it makes a clicking sound when the key is turned from inside the cockpit. Is there a relay or fuse that could be the problem and not the starter or solenoid?
If the starter is clicking when you turn the key then the relay is not the problem, more likely is the battery and starter wire connections. Take them off and clean them before putting them back on ( have the battery checked ) corrosion will cause the symptom you described, however there should be a starter relay in the engine compartment fuse panel. If the truck is a standard transmission, it could be the Neutral safety switch, which is located under the clutch pedal. However, most likely it is the solenoid on the starter, I just had the same problem, time for a new starter.
