    Comments about CARQUEST Starter - Remanufactured:

    There was a little bit of interference with the new solenoid and a cooling line. the solenoid is a little bit bigger. I had to tap on a steel cooling line to bend/re-shape it...then the starter went straight in - 1995 240sx base model.
    Pricing is decent with a lifetime warranty.

        Replacement for original on my '89 Nissan 240SX that went out at 204,000 miles. This is a rebuilt nissan part. Make sure to take your 240SX starter in to compare. Nissan used Mitsubishi and Hitachi starters and there is a slight difference. This replacement replaced my Hitachi with good results. Starter did not come with new bolts and the solenoid positive cable nuts were thin and weak. overall, an average replacement starter. We will see if it lasts half as long as the original.
