\015 97 Sentra, the starter turns over but doesn't turn over the engine. Replaced the starter and that didn't help\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 30-11-2020

Answers :

I know it sounds dumb, but by turning over, you mean that the engine turns but does not start? Or, that the starter turns but the engine does not turn (spin with the starter engaged and running). If engine turns with starter, check spark & fuel. If starter turns and engine does not, check the teeth on the flywheel. if any are missing or worn off, it will give that problem. If starter engages but engine seems to be "locked up", remove spark plugs and attempt to turn it by hand. Any coolant on plugs indicates a blown head gasket or cracked cylinder head. If engine does not turn by hand with plugs out, likely you have a bearing or other "lower end" problem.
