Are you refering to your starter being hung? See if you can turn the enging useing the harmonic balancer bolt. Next, if you can, then turn the enginge backwards a couple of revolutions to see if the starter comes free. If not, the starter will have to be loosened or removed to awollow the bendix drive to return.
