Not compatible with the '96 Roadmaster: get the 6442S

      Comments about CARQUEST Starter - Remanufactured:

      My '96 Roadmaster needed a new starter. The advanced auto parts website says this is the one compatible for it. Purchased it, went to install it, and it didn't fit! Did some research after. Found out the '94 Roadmaster uses a different starter (model 6442S) which is bigger sized starter from the '95-'96 Roadmaster. Went ahead and decided to try that out. And sure enough, it fit like a charm. Moral of the story- if you have a '95-'96 Roadmaster and need a new starter, get the one that's for the '94 Roadmaster.

            Comments about CARQUEST Starter - Remanufactured:

            The casting for the bolt mounts is to thin. Fissures develop and starter breaks away. GM is to blame for this. The solenoid fails far to often and this is probably due to the unit being rebuilt in Mexico and quality control isn't up to par with American QA.
            I don't believe the new starters are made in the U.S. either.

            I have a 1996 Caprice Classic, my second one. I've replaced several starters in my past, but I've never had the issues that I've had with this brand. the housing for my make & year isnt accurate. It's too small therefore the standard bolts dont fit. after showing this to the store clerk, he brought another starter out. same maker, but prev year, the housing matched the correct make & model. after finally getting the correct fit, i install the starter only for the housing to crack a few months later. stick with the manufactuer brand!
