starter fun.


Recommended Posts

went out to start the truck up after school today and had a no-go.

 

power everythign (i usually prime the pump then start)

everythign worked but starter just clicked alot.

 

so i hit it and stuff and the truck started up fine after a few good whacks.

 

 

is there anything i should to to insure this doesnt happen again?

is this a sign of the solenoid going bad?

if i replace the solenoid should i just go ahead and replace the whole starter for 30$ more?

 

gracias.

Just the soleniod is whats wrong but for the price if you have the money go ahead and Do the starter it want hurt anything. But it may be 6 months before it messes up again or it could do it tonight. I would just keep the money handy and carry a hammer until it got to doing it alot. Just my 2 cents

thanks for the advice yall, thats pretty much what my brother said but i figured id ask for a second opinion.

 

sucks when you brag about your jeep all the time and go to hop in it and it won't start :mad: but then i felt like a badass when i "fixed" it in bout 5 seconds. jamminz.gif
