. "The ratio of the number of teeth on the ring gear and the starter drive pinion gear is usually between 15:1 and 20:1. This means the starter motor is rotating 15 to 20 times faster than the engine. Normal cranking speed for the engine is about 200 rpm. If the starter drive had a ratio of 18:1, the starter would be rotating at a speed of 3,600 rpm. If the engine started and was accelerated to 2,000 rpm, the starter speed would increase to 36,000 rpm. This would destroy the starter motor if it was not disengaged from the engine."

Your 1995 Nissan Sentra wont turn over when you turn the key but it still has power?

The starter relay, solenoid or starter itself most likely is bad. If you hear clicking from the starter when you turn the key, then the starter is most likely the cause.

How do you check if your starter has gone bad on your 1991 Chevy lumina van?

There are two simple ways to check if the reason your car does not turn over is a bad starter. 1) Charge the battery to its fullest. If the starter turns over slowly and then no longer turns, it would indicate that it is wearing out. A good starter should turn over extremely fast when the battery is "topped off." 2) If the starter does not engage, and the engine will not turn over, then your best tools is a hammer, crowbar, or a straight metal pipe. While someone else is in your car with the key turned to "start" position, you begin to hit your starter with your hammer, many, many times. You must hit the base of the starter very forcefully, the large cylinder part. A bad starter will almost always turn over for a short time using this method. It may take a minute or two, and the person with car key may need to turn off and on a few times, but NOT push gas pedal. The starter should be located right in front of motor on the bottom. You should be able to see it by getting on the ground in front of your car in the center. The starter is a large cylinder object, with another smaller cylinder object atop of it (the solenoid).
