some cars can lose the meshing of the starter drive to the teeth at the flywheel ringgear or flexplate if it is automatic. some honda type cars have the flexplate gear attached to the torque converter if it has an automatic. Bench test starter and evaluate, turn the engine and inspect the teeth of the driven gear


You can try starting after just turning the engine some with wrench. leave running and drive to get diagnosis.
