It's a 2005 LLY. It doesn't do it all of the time maybe once every couple of days. The starter will spin but not engage to crank the engine over. I put a new starter on and checked battery connections and tested batteries. It sounds like the teeth are trying to mesh but they are not. When it does it I just shut the key off and try it again and it always works fine.
Any help would be great.
I would try cleaning the connections at the solenoid to make sure they are clean and able to pass a full current, if they are not, then they may not be allowing the teeth to get enough juice to engage fully.....
i just had a new starter put in a few weeks ago and now i'm having the same problem. i brought it to the shop and they're telling me that the new starter isn't messhing with a gear in the transmission and that they have to replace that gear. it's coasting me a 1000 bucks to get this done.
The same garage replaced the starter and thats when the issues began. i was having problems starting it before but that turned out to be the fuel filter so the new starter wasn't even needed.
i feel like i'm getting kinda screwed over by the garage, any thoughts or ideas?
