Hmm Starter??


Recommended Posts

Well, truck in sig. has an occational won't start moment. i.e. when I turn key to start it clicks once and quits. I repeat key turn a coulpe of times and it starts. I put 2 new 1000 cold cranking amp batteries in 2months ago with clean cable clamps. Volt meter reads 12.58 engine off and 13.67 to .75 at idle. on both batteries. I believe the starter is stock. Truck has 165k. Do I take the starter off to test OR new starter, starter cylinoid? Other options? Thanks Dave.

I assume you're talking about rebuilding the starter. Now I like to DIY but you can't beat a brand new starter from O'Reilly"s with a life-time warrantee for under $200.

Hmmm... Won't work for me... Closest OReilly's is 180 miles away... So figuring in fuel cost to go get it it would be more like $300 figuring against $4.609 a gallon... :broke: When a LarryB contact rebuild is cheap and comes in the mail... :wink:

Napa has a lifetime warranty on their starters as well...
