If the engine is "cranking" then it is "turning over". Please be more specific.
Cranking the car or starting the car in cold weather can wear out a car battery. You can also wear out the battery by turning the starter over without fuel in the tank.
biggest problem with ford starters burning out is caused by a bad battery and prolonged engine turning over if hard to start. if starter has been replaced, your battery may not have correct cranking amps. bare in mind that a hot engine actually takes more cranking amps than a cold engine to start.
what are you Cold Cranking Amps on your battery? perhaps your battery is not strong enough, if that's not the case something with the battery wiring i suppose as long as your starting is turning it should be a battery issue.
generally , cranking an engine is done with igniton where turning is done by hand with the ignition off so as it will not start
Weak battery? Loose or corroded battery cables? Weak starter?
If the new starter is measureing the same cranking voltage as the battery and is engaging but not turning over, you may have a seizure. Try to crank it by hand to be sure.
If your vechicle does that it means that your battery was dead and after a while of cranking it sometimes it gets charge and starts
== == If the engine is rotating when the starter is engaged then it is cranking which is the same as turning over. Check to see if you have spark and or fuel. There is not a fuse for cranking.
The key tells the strarter to start turning over. We need to know if there is No cranking of the starter or cranking but no start? Big differences as to what is not happening when it should be.
try turning it off then removing the battery then putting the battery back in the turning it on. it worked on mine
It may be out of battery.
The starter drive is shot. Replace the starter and hope the ring gear isn't damaged.
Why does any car crank but not turn over. Plugs, timing, battery, fuel, whatever. Start where the ignition is. If that's alright, see if it's getting gas. You should smell gasoline while you pump the throttle.
Check there is spark from the coil. Pull a plug and set it close to a ground and see if there is spark when cranking. If not, then coil or ignition module. If spark, then check fuel pressure at rail. Check fuel pump is coming on when turning key to on. Should hear it.
With your limited info there could be many reasons but first have you tested the cold cranking amps on the battery? The charging system may be fine but if the battery is going it could cause the problem your describing.
The lowest voltage a battery can drop to during cranking while still starting the car is 9.6v. You can tell a battery's state of charge by the voltage (12.6v is fully charged, 12.0v is low), but the way to tell if a battery is bad is to look at how the voltage changes under load. Most battery testers put a load of half the cold cranking amperage indicated on the battery and look for the voltage to drop below 9.6v, in which case the battery is determined to be bad. Another way to do it at home is to charge the battery at high amperage (can be done by revving the engine slightly and turning off electronics) and, using a voltmeter, look for the voltage to be above 15.5v. This indicates a lower amperage charge than desired and also that the battery should be replaced.
The belt turning the alternator which is recharging the battery.
Have you tried jumping the battery. If yes and that didn't work, and the car sounds like it is trying to start but not turning over it is proably your distributer.
There could be quite a few reasons why the car won't start. If cranking or turning over the engine is the problem and the starter is good, it may be the battery. If the engine turns over but won't start you have bigger problems...
That is probably your solenoid. It is what tells the battery to send voltage to the starter so it will crank the engine over. Most of the time it is just a low battery that makes it make that sound. There isn't enough voltage to keep the solenoid engaged. Although, it could be a bad solenoid. If jumping it doesn't start it then it is more than likely the solenoid. If jumping does start it then you need a battery.
