    You have a faulty starter or the flywheel is broken. Take the starter out and look at the edge of the flywheel where the teeth are supoosed to be. You can test the starter bendix with the starter removed.

    You can remove the starter and if the flywheel appears to be good, take a battery jump pack that you may have (or jumper cables attached to your car battery) and attach the positive cable to the starter threaded battery stud. the starter case is the ground connection (anyplace solid), but remember, there is no switch, so put yoiur foot on the starter on the ground and face the starter so you can see the bendix. The positive cable is already attached to the starter stud and when you touch the negative cable to the starter casting the starter will turn on and the bendix gear should pop out to the end of the nose and spin with the motor.
