Starter.

I have replaced the starter in my explorer 3 times in the last month. Hoping that one of them would work but they keep doing the same thing. When I turn the key to start the engine all the starter does is spin. It does not engage the flywheel and it doesn't grind.

Do you
have the same problem?

It sounds as if you have a shim in there that you don't need. However, I havn't seen shims in Fords! Check the flywheel, teeth the starter meshes with!
