If the starter just replaced on my 94' ford explorer is spinning when the ignition is turned on does that mean it is getting adequate power? It does not crank or anything but spin? help please!
Starter spins not engaging with the flywheel, should I put additional shims? Or
could it be a bad starter? Is it getting enough power if the starter spins or
could it be faulty wiring still? I have replaced the fender selonoid.
Usually Fords don't require shims, it sounds like your replacement starter is bad, or heaven forbid the flex plate is broken.
Thank you Tennisshoes, I will take it off and have it tested, it is a refurbished one from Autozone. I might just buy a new one!
UGGH a refurb from autozone, now that's scary, I quit using remains years ago, just not worth the hassle of putting on 2 or 3 starters before getting a good one.
Yeah, think you're right, i'm gonna spend the few extra dollars to get a new one. Just hope that is all it is? Thanks again for your help!
