Should the starter gears be in contact with the fly wheel before engaging the starter?

Absolutely not. The starter gear must fully disengage the flywheel gears when you release the starter. Otherwise when the engine starts the starter will continue to be turned by the engine.

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

Sounds like you might have a bad starter relay.

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 does an automobile starter do?

Besides the smart alec answer "start an automobile", a starter has a small gear, that will both extend as well as rotate when the key is turned. This gear will engage teeth on the flywheel/flexplate, which is bolted to the rear of the crankshaft. As the starter turns, the engine will be turned.

How do you know if it is the ignition switch or your solonied that is bad in a '88 Ford truck?

Is the selenoid getting power when the switch is turned to the start position? If yes, it's not a switch problem. Is power coming THROUGH the switch and to the starter when the key is turned to start? If not, it's a selenoid problem. If yes, it's a starter problem.

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.?

Has it always been like this or not? If it is, then it is not really a problem. It is how the stereo was installed. An stereo can be installed to be turned on whether the engine is on or off. If the stereo cannot be turned off at all, then you have a problem with your stereo.

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.

When you hook up your battery your car starts by itself and when you turn the car off it is still on how to solve this problem?

I have had my starter solenoid short out and go bad and keep on trying to start the engine even after I turned the key off. I had to disconnect the battery to stop it and buy a new starter solenoid and install it !

You need to check the idle control valve, and the air filter.

Why would your car start up fine if left alone for a long time but not start if recently turned off?

Maybe a bad starter. Try starting it cold then shut it off before the engine gets warm and see if it starts back up. If so the starter could be in a bind from the heat the engine puts off metal expands when hot and contracts when cold. Repacing the starter might solve the problem.

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.

On a 91 ford explorer the question is why would the starter not only stay engaged to the flywheel after the engine has started but keeps running even after the key and engine have been turned off?

The 1991 Ford Explorer should have a separate starter relay that sends power to the starter. It sounds like the relay has stuck and is sending power to the starter even after the vehicle is running.

Two functions of a solenoid fitted to a pre engaged starter motor?

1. To engage the starter with the ring-gear on the engine before the starter is turned on. IE to "pre-engage" it. 2. To turn the starter on once it is Engaged. This prevents/reduces damage to the gear-teeth on both the starter and the ring gear.

ENGINE wont turn over on 350?

Check that battery volts are at least 11.8, and terminals are tight. Check for same voltage at starter when key is turned. - If no volts at the starter, the solenoid is faulty. If there is a charge at the starter and it does nothing then it, or it's ground are faulty.

Either the battery is bad or the connections at the battery or starter are corroded or loose. Was the starer bad to begin with?, Can the engine be turned over by hand? Did you buy a cheeseball starter motor like ones autozone sells?
