                  Works well. Probably the easiest to install that I have done in a long time. I normally work with much heavier starters, so this one was refreshing to work with.

                      Been on for almost 3 months and working fine. Good quality rebuilt starter. Choose this starter because of the limited lifetime warranty over the other 1 year warranty.

                          • Q:

                            I have very similar problems. My car will turn over really slow at first and now not at all. I bought a new top of the line battery from advanced 3 weeks ago. It will not do anything. It doesnt turn over at all anymore, a friend of mine said to hit the starter and try to start it: that did not work either. Any suggestion? Could it be the starter and the alternator? He said the starter would smoke when I tried to start it. Does that mean it is definitley the starter?

                              It could be the starter or the alternator. I would recommend taking it in to a reputable mechanics shop to determine the exact cause of why the vehicle is not starting as the issue might not be one of those parts.

                              yes it is the starter sometimes the electrical in the starter shorts an it will take more amps to turn it over it can also drain your battery dead this is common.

                              A:

                              Tech Tip #199: According to General Motors, some owners have reported weak or discharged batteries; the starter motor may turn over slow, the alternator may not charge, and the malfunction indicator light may be on or come on intermittently.
                              If you have experienced one or more of these problems and basic diagnostics have not determined a cause, or, everything tested good, check the following.
                              The alternator output cable goes to starter "B+" and then to the battery positive. According to General Motors the "B+" stud at the starter may be loose, causing high resistance in the battery positive circuit from the alternator to the battery.
                              Inspect the condition of the starter motor "B+" nut at starter to 106 in. lbs. (12N.m). Recharge and load test battery, replace if needed.

                              If the light go out when you turn the key, I suggest you test your battery again. I know you said that you had it tested, but did you test it after you ran it for awhile? It could be the wiring, but what I suggest is to take it to your nearest Advance Auto Parts store and I believe that they can help you figure it out.
