It sounds like you need either a flywheel or the bendix on the starter is worn out. Easy fix if it is starter.

There are several reasons why a Crown Victoria will not start. One reason could be a dead battery. Another reason is that the spark plugs and plug wires may need to be changed.

Have you checked the coil to start with ?

That could possibly have something to do with the starter motor as my car does that quite often.

If it is a high pitch noise and the tractor does not start, your battery might be too weak. Check the water level in the battery.

Don't ignore that kind of sound. Find out what is causing it and replace or repair the faulty part. A "grinding noise" can be caused by an alternator, water pump, idler pulley, heater fan motor, air pump or any of a long list of components, many of which can cause some serious problems if they seize or come apart.

Usually that just means the battery is dead. It's trying to crank the starter but doesn't have enough power. Try jumping it from another car and see if that starts it.

A grinding noise can be generated by many things from worn out brake pads to axle bearing failure. Once a grinding sound has been detected action must

Check for fuel, do you here a hum from the fuel tank, and check for spark.

Start with a complete tune up including spark plug wires.

Usually it dies slowly, won't start one day and start the next. It usually becomes more frequent. Also usually acompanied by a grinding noise.

If the mower has an electric starter, the gear on the starter is worn. Replacement is not hard and the part (a plastic gear) is relatively inexpensive.
