Starter clicks but doesn't spin
We have recently had alternator trouble (replacement installed), coil pack went out
right after (replacement installed). Now the starter has started acting up, cranks
fine most of the time. However on occasion, it only clicks. I thought originally that
the solenoid was going bad but this morning I watched under the hood while my
lady hit the switch and with each click, the engine bumped just a fraction. I'm not a
mechanic by no means but I've never seen this happen and I have worked on a lot
of engines in my life. I'm thinking starter now. Mike
Starter solenoid. Usually cheaper to buy a starter setup instead of just the solenoid and change it. If you have a multimeter you can put the positive lead on the positive terminal of the starter solenoid and the negative lead on a ground and have someone turn the key. If it's getting 12 volts, then it's the solenoid.
Yea mine spins but won't start, do you think its the same thing?
