Why does a 1994 Topaz with 120000 on the engine make a grinding noise when starting or it wont start at all?

That is a broken/worn teeth on the flywheel or on the starter pininon gear. That is why you hear a grinding noise. It's the starter turning without being able to engage.From what you describe I would suspect that the starter is not fully engaging. I'm assuming that the grinding noise you hear when you try to engage the starter is INSTEAD of the engine cranking. If I assumed wrong, ignore the following:Pull the starter, check the flywheel for excessively worn areas. Most of the time the flywheel is ok, it's just the starter. If you feel comfortable working on the starter, just get a new bendix and clean up the rest of it. Any time you disassemble a starter you should replace the bushings and brushes. Never remove the starter with the battery still connected. Remove the negative terminal from the battery before you attempt to remove the starter.

By taping on the starter on a Pontiac G6 will that make the car crank?

Possibly if the starter solenoid contacts are weakened as this will cause them to reconnect long enough to start the vehicle or the plunger is seized in the wrong position. Once you start tapping starters to engage them a replacement is on the horizon.


You hooked up the starter and hooked back up the battery and the car rolls over by itself and you cant shut it off what did you do wrong?

Why dont i get full battery power from new battery the truck shows that the battery is like dead it cranks over really slow n it drains the battery and the cranking gets slower whats wrong?

Most likely the starter is "dragging" due to worn bushings. When the bushings wear, the starter will "drag" against the interior of the housing and barely spin, causing the battery to drain.

Your Chevy starter does not engage it spins but will not engage any suggestions It is a mini sbc starter.?

Could be the starter drive is not engaging or perhaps you're using the wrong holes for your flywheel. If you have a 153 tooth ring and have the starter in the 168 tooth position, the gears would not mesh. Did it ever start? if it did ,most likely the starter drive is broken, or the pinion ,or flywheel are stripped of their teeth. Bendix is broken, Starter too far from ring gear, broken bendix throwout fork.

1996 Saturn SL won't start and new starter still clicks so tried jumping it but still clicks finally connected positive from booster battery directly to starter and it started what's wrong?

Your problem is the starter solenoid. It may be a remote solenoid mounted on the inner fender well. You can easily check it by running a battery booster cable from the positive battery post to the starter side of the solenoid wiring (the heavy wiring). If the starter operates, the solenoid is bad.
