You have a problem with a 1993 f150 6 cylinder starter engages for about 2 turns then seems to backfire and shuts down?

It sounds like the timing is bad. You'll need to have a mechanic check it.

Modern starters include: * the starter motor... a motor * the solenoid, which engages the electrical current to the starter AND engages the gear to the flywheel. * the bendix, which is a gear that engages the starter to the flywheel.

You want to bypass the ignition system and jump the solenoid to see if the starter engages. I f it does, it is not the starter,if it doesn't, than it is the stater. You can also jump power straight from the batt to the pos cable of the starter to see if it engages.

The chain can not backfire. If it is installed off time it can cause a backfire, which could conceivably damage a starter.

It's actually on the starter, and it's the small cylinder attached to it. Windstar starters have a dual-purpose solenoid that not only engages the starter gear with the flywheel, but also acts as the starter relay.

It's probably part of the starter itself. Look to see where the BIG positive wire from the battery goes. I'll bet it goes to a little cylinder that is part of the starter. This little cylinder is the relay and starter solenoid that engages the starter gear into the flexplate as it closes the relay to the starter to turn the engine over. TommyTrouble

i tried it all it did was backfire still wouldnt start Spray the starter fluid into the air filter intake. If it backfires and will not start you have a problem that needs to be fixed.

solenid switch engages and disengages the bendix on the starter

To turn the engine over so that it will start. The starter engages cogs on the flywheel.

I'm not sure what you mean by "slips". Is the starter making a grinding noise or does the starter sound like it is missing the flywheel completely? My first thought was a bad starter drive (part of the starter) but if you replaced the starter with a new one it shouldn't be that.

The starter will not rotate the flywheel, grinding sound when starter engages, slow revolution of starter motor. Loud humming from starter motor.

The bushings and/or the brushes are worn on it.

Sounds like your starter drive shaft is broken. If the starter is spinning but the shaft they comes out of the nose cone engages, but does not spin, it is most likely broken...You may have other issues causing the problem.

either clean and tighten cable connections or get battery tested. if not the battery, it is the solenoid or the starter If it is clicking and not starting at first, but starts after a few tries, its your starter taking a dump. Replace it.

Where is starter on a 4 cylinder mazda 626?

Take the steering column housing off (usually held by 4 screws from the bottom) and remove the starter cap from the back of the ignition cylinder. In a Nissan, the ignition cylinder usually has a T shaped pin which turns the starter. if you can start your vehicle by turning the starter cap with a screw driver, you probably don't have an issue with the starter.

The starter motor is located between the transmission and the engine which engages the starter clutch with the flywheel, which rotates and starts the engine.

If you're implying that it engages without you turning the key, the problem is one of the following: * a faulty wire somewhere, * the starter solenoid was connected wrong * or the solenoid return spring has broken.

The Bendix on a Ford starter is a one-way gear that engages when the starter is activated. and the Bendix is perhaps one of the most common starter failures.

On a six cylinder the starter is on the front of the engine, behind the motor mount. On the four cylinder, the starter is on the rear under the intake manifold.

GM usually uses a combination solenoid/switch/relay located beside the starter. One end engages the starter. The other end connects the battery to the starter motor.

Where is the starter on a 1998 Pontiac Grand Am, 6 cylinder

A jackshaft is an assembly that connects the starter shaft/spline to the starting gear. When the starter button is pushed a pinion gear (part of the jackshaft assy.) engages the starter gear spinning the starter gear.

The starter on a vehicle is always located directly in between the engine and the transmission. When a starter engages, it kicks out a rotating gear that meets with the flywheel of the vehicle, which is also a major component that mates the engine and transmission together. Different vehicle manufacturers mount this component on either the driver or passenger side, depending on the model.
