Pros

  • Fit Without Shims

Cons

  • Low Quality Nose Casting

Best Uses

    Comments about CARQUEST Starter - New:

    The starter nose casting is too thin and of a poor material. My car was set at factory specifications and the starter was gapped correctly. After about 10 starts I heard a loud pop while starting it. Unbolted the starter and found a quarter inch wide nose casting crack with a narrow crack almost all the way around the back. The only good thing was that I returned it and got my money back. It may be new but my core which was original to the car was better, wish I would have kept the original just in case. The original was so worn that you could hear parts rattling around inside of it but it was stronger and started better than this new Remy.

      • Q:

        Is this compatible with a 1991 3.0 OMC. I installed it on my boat but now I'm being told I should never use an automotive starter on a boat. Something about the marine starter being sealed so no fumes can be ignited. In addition the starter is supposed to be SAE Marine. There are a lot of mixed reviews online about this but most point to use only marine. I'm not able to find any thorough evidence/facts to support needing to remove this one and buy another.

          A:

          This ToughOne Starter - Part No. 96112 does not fit for your 2001 OMC 3.0L. Unfortunately at this time we do not have the ability to look up parts for your vehicle. We are working to have this ability available on our website in the near future. Until this feature is implemented you may look up the part you are inquiring about by searching for the name, part number, or description. For any further assistance please feel free to call us at: 1-877-238-2623 or visit the nearest Advance Auto Parts store and one of our Parts Pros will gladly assist you with any questions or concerns you may have.
