Starter Hung,


Recommended Posts

Question, what is the normal or usual reasons for a starter to hang? I walked out of the office, fired the truck and it was the strangest damn noise, once i realized what it was, I shut it down, restarted normally,
home now, tried to reproduce it and it seems to be fine now.

I have the truck on ramps cooling at the moment and going to inspect the starter to make sure its not lose etc. it was the damnedest thing
FYI, i just replaced the batteries and the truck has a very brisk start to it now. is the starter getting worn??
Thoughts?

I would think the solinoid hung. Chances are from many cycles of use. It happens at times with age.

I will budget it in. truck is at ~160k

You can rebuild it yourself for about half that over a few brews and a little time. I do believe there is a write up and the kit is available from different vendors.

The contact coming from the power side wears much quicker than the other side. Once the power side wears enough it can wedge the solenoid in place. Not hard to fix at all

 

Larry B's is where I got mine, and they are oversized! My truck seemed to start faster after

Here are some pics. It takes more time to pull the starter than it does to pop the back off and replace.
