I have a question that I've been wondering about for a while. Let's say you have a dead battery on an automatic transmission vehicle so that you can't just pop the clutch and start and you're stuck out in the middle of nowhere. Can you remove the belt from the alternator and spin the alternator by hand for a while to put enough charge in the battery? I assume you would have to be spinning it at a minimum RPM for it to create any charge.

Scotty I have the same exact car. Is it safe to use the sea foam transmission fluid cleaner you recommended to fix to clean a power steering rack that is tough to turn to clean out the transmission on my vehicle?

I tried this after watching the video and it totally worked. I'm no car expert. I just saw the video on a whim... I had been having trouble with my car and one day it died. I called AAA but then remembered the video and tapped the starter with a hoof pick. Car started right up! Was able to get home and watch more of your videos to diagnose the problem and get it fixed. THANKS SCOTTY!!!

My dad kept his truck going for a long time by keeping a baseball bat in the back to tap the starter. Eventually I just went and pulled a starter from a newer truck in a junkyard and replaced it in half an hour.
Amir Danial (1 месяц назад)
this is true. i have done this before numerous times on my old car. it is usually because of the contact patch between the armature and the carbon brush got dirty or dusted. if you may, you can open up the starter and cleans the contacts and carbon brush (or change the carbon brush) then install it back. there is a possibility it will run again like new.

I figured this out after I sarcastically told my friend to whack his dead starter with a hammer. To my knowledge it still works

Alternatively, jack of all tricks is to try to roll the car some how and keep it gear and clutch and just switch ignition along with releasing the clutch. Voila, it works!

you shouldnt hit a permanent magnet starter because what if the starter was actually not the problem and you break the brittle magnets inside. Now you just bought yourself a starter and still have to find the original problem.

I did it for 6 months of repeated multiple times daily on a Chevy Malibu, at the end I had to whack on it for like 2 minutes, with the wife turning it over. But hey, 3 other things went and I tossed it in the garbage without ever paying for ANY fixes. 40k miles like that.

I figured this trick out on my own, I didn't hear cranking but did hear clicking...knew battery was purring so... Had a hammer in my backseat, wailed on her from under the car. Dented it but the beast started one more time home. Physical abuse may be illegal but it gets the job done.

Had a Mitsubishi Galant back in the 90's and used this method to start it when needed for around 2 years. I used to separate my "club" which I always had in the car. Give her a good whack and she was good to go.

I bought a "trigger" style starter switch several years ago, to help when I don't have somebody to help turn the ignition to start. One cable end clips to the B+, the other end to the starter relay control post. With the ignition on, tap the starter (or sometimes anywhere near it, i.e. the exhaust manifold) with a long breaker bar from above, while pulling the switch trigger. Don't even have to get under the car with a hammer, since the vibration is often enough to make the carbon brushes move enough to make contact with the commutator. Learned this back in the 60's (from my machinist/mechanic Dad) and have used it many times. Most recently today, after a week of doing it, until the brushes have just worn down too much. If the starter motor slows down while you're using the switch (or turning the key), that's a sign that possibly the brushes are worn enough that it's presenting enough resistance to burn the commutator's surface, so STOP and repair the starter (new brushes) and might as well throw a new solenoid on it while you've got it apart, since you can get them both on eBay for about $12 - $15 each, w/free shipping. Make sure that the little gears and end bushing/bearing are well greased before you put it back together and you won't have to replace it for another 2 - 3 (or more) rebuilds. Oh, and one time I found that the B+ connector nut on the starter had loosened enough to cause this problem, so before you pull the starter, make sure that isn't the problem, first.

I use this all the time to get vehicles that are towed into my shop to fire up and get it inside my building where I can lift it. Sometimes you can do it more than once, others you get that one last chance to get it to where you need it.

I repaired the starter in my car. It had worn brushes. The starter motor in most cars is not a permanent magnet unit like someone has stated. With my starter, I had a spare body complete with field windings. The brushes are about 1/4 worn. I simply removed the solenoid & front housing from the starter motor, along with armature, removed the black coating from the commutator, under cut the mica between commutator bars, then installed it to the body with the good brushes, reassembled, & put it back in the car. Yes, I lubricated the end bearing bushes too!! Works fine now. The reason starter motors do not have permanent magnets in them is due to the high current draw under load. This current can be somewhere around 400 amps!! Permanent magnet motors cannot carry this much current through the armature alone, because the heat build up will melt the windings on the armature.

Most likely it's a loose nut from the solenoid to the starter motor. It could also be a loose ground from the starter relay to the engine block, corroded battery posts or connections, and lastly loose or corroded terminals on the starter/ignition relay.

Here's my deal. I bought a 2000 Lincoln Town Car on April 2nd. It's April 14th right now. Earlier today, my battery was randomly dead for no good earthly reason. My neighbor came and jump started me and it worked. All I was trying to do was pull my car down a few feet under the tree for some shade so I could wax it. Fast forward a few hours until now, almost dark outside and I went to turn the car on and BAM, nothing happens at all. I was trying to turn my car around in the driveway. My brother tried to jump me 3 times and NOTHING happened each time. What's wrong? I don't have a multi meter to test anything. Edit: The battery was manufactured in February 2018. That's right, only 2 months ago. I haven't left any lights or the radio on. I don't get it.

On my 99 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4 318 V8 the throw out bearing decided to part ways...so a clutch kit was installed since it was all torn apart anyhow. Cool new clutch installed and away I went for a couple weeks....one day I stopped at the hardware store for some stuff came back out and went to start the truck and all I got was the sound of a starter freespinning, thought well great now the dang starter failed too ugg. I got out of the truck crawled underneath and here hangs the starter from the positive battery cable...called the shop and told them I was bringing the truck down if they could possibly find some starter bolts to put back in the starter since they decided that tightening down the original bolts was optional LOL. How'd I get the truck down there? Well that's the beauty of a manual transmission, a simple push start and away I went right down to the shop, parked it and shut it off and they called me about an hour later that it was ready, I made sure to check that they actually tightened the starter bolts that time...gee pretty bad I have to double check the mechanic's shitty ass work...
