My Ranger has been making this grinding noise when I try to turn it over....I kept turning it over and stopping until the truck will crank. So it was the starter.
Anyways.. I removed the starter and checked it and the flywheel..
I went to go get a new starter....
Put it on and my trucks key will turn on the fuel pump but won't start the engine...so I just turn the key on to where the fuel pump is working and got a screw driver and bump the solinoid..
My new starter will spin....but won't turn over the engine.
I thought the flywheel had enough grip to grab the starter teeth...like wtf!??!
