I would double check all the connections on the starter and check the connection on the battery, as ling as all those are good I would doiuble check to make sure that you used the right amount of shims for the starter. I once forgot to put them in and it wouldn't crank. My 94 cav, needed three. Hope this helps. You need to look very closely at both ends of each battery cables. If they are corroded, dirty,etc, replace them.Make sure you sand down surface they attach/ground to so remove any paint, film, etc. It sure sounds like a connection problem to me. Good luck.
could be the starter or the solenoid, they arer pron to heating up especially when using headers, peace
Sounds like you might have a bad starter relay.
You may have a fuel problem, check the fuel filter and fuel pump.
If it cranks just fine once it gets going then, most likely, the starter has to be replaced.
you might have blow out a head or over headed the engine
Weak battery? Loose or corroded battery cables? Bad ignition switch? Bad neutral or clutch safety switch? Bad starter? Bad starter solenoid?
Have you checked the air filter? Fresh Gas? Battery amps?Does the starter spin and not engage? If so it is your starter solenoid.
dude trust on this. its your starter motor, it happened to me once. it will just cranks and it feels like the battery is dying out but nope its your solenoid on your starter motor that is worn out. best of luck dude
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.
No. If you have enough power for the engine to crank then it has enough power to run the other systems. ALSO..i've started a car with a good battery and replaced it with "unknown battery" and it has stalled the motor. Starter and everything was good. Technically, even if the battery is dead and all other systems are normal this shouldn't happen. Go figure.
Check the timing.
have the cables been checked. same happened to my 87 same problem found it was the orgnial cables needed to be replaced.
depending on what type of fuel delivery, check fuel injectors or tbi
Yes. The alternator is used to keep the battery charged, while using the headlights, radio, a/c, etc. The starter to me is misstated because it actually cranks the engine. The ignition system starts it, and keeps it running.
If the battery turns the engine over as it should then the battery is good.
Starter won't crank over engine? Battery or battery connection issues. Starter cranks over engine but engine won't start? Being a GM product I would suspect fuel delivery problems (bad fuel pump).
Your question is confusing. If the engine cranks it is turning over.
Usually when hot? Could be a starter going bad
If car cranks over and won't start it is not the starter, alternator or battery. Most likely the ignition wires or module, fuel delivery system or air intake meter.
buy a new starter motor yours is worn out
check your timing belt
if it wont crank the the starter is probally out but if it cranks and the motor doesnt turn either the belt is to loose or the engine is locked up
If an engine is cranking slowly the first thing I would suspect is a weak battery. Remove both battery cables and clean both the cable connectors and the battery posts. Put a battery charger on the battery and charge it until if is fully charged. If the problem still persists, then suspect a starter going bad or the engine is slow in time. Remove the starter and have it tested at an auto parts store. If the starter checks OK, then you need to have the engine timing checked. If your Check Engine light is on, have the ECU scanned for a trouble code and go from there.
Check your battery system. Have your starter checked along with the battery. Batteries are good for about 5 to 7 years for optimal performance. If you live in a cold climate, maybe get a battery with a higher amount of rated cold cranks.
