Two functions of a solenoid fitted to a pre engaged starter motor?

1. To engage the starter with the ring-gear on the engine before the starter is turned on. IE to "pre-engage" it. 2. To turn the starter on once it is Engaged. This prevents/reduces damage to the gear-teeth on both the starter and the ring gear.

How many rotations per minute does a car starter turn?

. "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."

What is the purpose of a hold in windings in a starter?

There are pull in windings and hold in windings in a solenoid on a starter. The pull in pulls the starter gear into the ring gear on the engine then the hold in takes over and allows more power for the starter to turn the engine.
