2002 Corolla Will Not Start

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I own 2002 corolla on turning key starter will turn but starter pinion will not engage with flywheel.

Flywheel ok, teeth ok.

Starter tested turns.

Solenoid part of starter checks out ok electrically

Any ideas?????????

Tried giving the starter a tap with a hammer?

Starers have a spring mechanism to retract when the key is flipped back a notch. Check to see if that operation works well...

The spring keeps the Pinion retracted, when the starter is engaged, centrifugal forces push the pinion out to engage the fly wheel and thus turning the engine over.

Tapping the starter is an age old remedy for a stuck pinion, may not be the problem and may not cure anything, but it costs nothing to try...
