Starter motor woes
#1
The starter motor on my 55 plate 1.6 hdi was sticking occasionally so I bought a new one but whe I fitted it it spins but wont engage the flywheel. I replaced the original one thinking the new one was faulty bvut its now doing the same thing. Any ideas anyone PLEASE !

Try putting the van in 3rd gear and push it to turn the engine a bit. Now try starting it again. If it starts you may have a broken tooth on your ring gear. Confusedalut:

That's what I was thinking!

Would have thought you might get a crunching sound if it was the ring gear. Is your battery voltage ok? I wonder if it might not just have enough oomph to throw the cog down the shaft toward the ring gear.

Sorry it took so long to get back. I took my car to my local mender ,he removed the starter, checked the flywheel ( no missing teeth ) the electrics ( no problems ) so replaced the starter motor and now it works like it should ,the only explanation he could come up with is " what do you expect from a French car "
Thanks to everyone who suggested a fix or test I just wish I could find the problem was

It may just have been a bad earth connection between starter & block.I have cured this sometimes by just loosening & retightening the starter mounting bolts.Confusedalut:
