So my 84 ford f150 starter went out. I replaced it with a new one the next day. it started up strong no problem for a couple days the boom! the same problem. I can hear spinning from the starter which is brand new but no crank from the engine, what could be my problem?? its like something keeps causing my starter to fail.

  • Did the previous one have exactly the same symptoms (starter spinning, but pinion not engaging with the ring gear)? – HandyHowie Mar 5 '19 at 7:58
  • You probably have a bad starter ring gear, which is part of the flywheel or torque converter. – Moab Mar 5 '19 at 21:45
  • worn teeth on the flywheel poor earth connection – carlos takunda Apr 28 '19 at 12:58
