    It tested good but 2 days later the power steering pump went out. So no real road test yet.

        Replaced an old, rusted, remanufactured starter on my 2005 Jeep Wrangler with this starter. Took longer to remove the old starter as the electrical connection was rusted and had to be cut off. New starter went on in under 10 minutes and the Jeep fired right up. What's not to like about that?

              Adv auto don't care about how well they pack an item. The starter broke free from it's original box and was floating around in a huge box that was getting tossed around by UPS... it arrived damaged and all I could get a hold of was Friggin foreign countries to try to get it resolved. Their phone support sux and I just ended up sending it back for a full refund. I will never shop them again

                    • Q:

                      Okay so i have a problem and not sure if its my starter or not. I have changed the battery cleaned the terminals in the battery. I can crank it with jumper cables and it start fine. I leave it running a long time and when i turn it off and try to crank it again all im getting is a clicking noise. Dont think its the alternator b/c i took the terminals off while running and it kept running. I need to know if i need a starter or if its something else?

                        With out the presence of your vehicle we would not be able to properly diagnose it nor provide you with a 100% answer. We would suggest taking your vehicle to a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis before buying and having parts installed that may not solve or be the problem.
