This is the advantage of a manual transmission, folks.  Just push, and disengage the clutch in the right gear.  Works on BOTH low battery & bad starter...

Yep, I have a classic 75 Camaro with a starter issue. I remember doing this when working on my cars when I was a kid but never thought to try to pound on starter to get it to respond, but it worked indeed!! Thanks Scotty for refreshing my old mind on how to get her started 1 more time before replacement!

One last time? I had to hit mine for over 2 years. I find that if you treat a car with to to much respect and coddle it with kid gloves ....Well the car becomes spoiled and starts to act up....A good smack here and there, makes a car sit up and take notice when it sees you coming and flies straight. I once made one of my cars run for 17 straight years on 0 oil changes and when it needed a top up, I was given all the used oil from those who changed their oil regularly, from a service station guy in a huge blue water container that was made for camping. In case your wondering, the car was a 1970 something, 2 door sporty little 4 cylinder Datsun 200SX. Damn I miss that car.

My father had a 91 toyota previa that he refused to sell. He would use a hammer on the starter almost daily after work. In the morning it fired right up but after work this did the trick which was weird. He finally sold it in 2012 and now drives a tundra.

kermitefrog64 (2 месяца назад)
Thank you. I agree but in this case I hit it a couple of times with a hammer but it would not start. I went to the Costco in Irvine for fuel and because it was a long line I turned off the engine but then it would not come back on and it sounded like the starter wanted to do something but the solenoid would not function. Now I finally had a couple of guys push me and since it is an old 1981 240d Mercedes diesel with a manual transmission I put the key in the on position and popped the clutch and it started. I went 89 more miles to San Ysidro in the San Diego area. The next day I went to O'Reilly's and got another Ultima starter which is an O'Reilly brand. The problem I repeatedly have though is the solenoid's keep going out. I thought this would be a better starter since it was a Wilson brand that O'Reilly's sells but once again it was the solenoid that went out because they put it on the machine and the solenoid would not push the bendix gear out. Any suggestions because this is getting to be a hassle.

I tryed this by tapping on it but no luck. And after i tryed so many times my battery finally went dead. Whats may problem here? Am guessing i got a bad stater. Please get back with me on this. Thank you.

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 (4 месяца 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.

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 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.
