Default Re: Urgent!! Starter ???

Only need a 13mm deep socket and some extensions, and the ability to contort your arm to start the upper bolt, since it is buried behind the starter.... Not hard, but tricky to get the top bolt in....

BTW, if it just clicks, most of the time, it is a solenoid failing. It draws more amps than normal, and wont leave the starter enough to turn. If it turns over a few times then quits, then it is bad starter motor, with bad brushes or windings, or a "dead spot" as often referred to.

GM, Saturn, and ASE certified Technician. Always glad to try to help, just ask!!! Now own an 06 ION.2 as of 7/2/06 with 2988 and counting (7/28/06) 13131 as of (1/8/07) 24901 as of (7/30/07)
