Coolant Leak - Starter Won't Grab Flywheel
Long Story: I was getting on the highway yesterday and as I accelerated I lost hear a line or something lose pressure underneath the hood. I left it in gear and let the engine bring me down to a crawl and then applied brakes to completely stop. After opening up the hood I noticed what happened. The Y connector in the coolant return line on the passenger side of the car got a small split in it and caused the coolant system to lose pressure. The car didn't over heat, was still at 190 degrees. I pulled the Y connector out and headed to the local auto parts store. Sure enough, they didn't have it! I bought some JBWeld and welded it all back together with a nice smooth coating. Went back to the car and put it back in. Filled her up with coolant. Now when I go to try and turn it over, I can hear the starter turning but it doesn't sound like the starter is grabbing the flywheel.
Short Story: Lost coolant pressure. Replaced the coolant line. Filled it back up. Now when I go to try and turn it over, I can hear the starter turning but it doesn't sound like the starter is grabbing the flywheel.
Questions: I haven't reset the ECU since this happened(Just cleared the pending codes). Do you think I should completely reset the ECU because some how its preventing the solenoid from engaging on the starter?
Do you think maybe the starter just happened to die at the same time this happened?
Given the circumstances and how quickly this all happened I don't think it did any internal damage, should I try pop starting it?
Any other thoughts, comments, concerns?
I greatly appreciate any help!
