Having issues when starting our 08 Outlook, we turn the key to start and the starter stays engaged but doesn'the start. We turn the car off and try again and it starts. I am thinking maybe the solenoid on the starter. Any suggestions wou.do be appreciated.
What do you mean by the starter stays engaged but the car will not start? It is not possible for the starter to engage and begin cranking the engine unless the solenoid is in working condition.
All lambdas have a feature that will continue cranking the engine until it starts to see the cylinders firing. This is so that you can't ruin the starter by cranking it after it has already started. If it doesn't see the cylinders start firing after a few seconds, it will stop cranking the engine.
