    If the starter is spinning, the solenoid is likely ok. Your question isn't real clear but it sounds like the pinion isn't engaging..

    ok, pinion is that in the starter so would need to replace the starter or is it a completely separate piece, have to admit haven't heard of a pinion in relation to a starter - still bumbling though trying to do some of the simpler stuff myself instead of paying big monies to the auto shop =) appreciate the input for sure
