I bought this starter to replace the original OEM starter inmy work truck. My old starter was still working fine but I wanted to be proactive since my livelyhood depends on my truck. Three days after paying to have it installed my truck wouldn't start. I crawled underneath and hit the starter with a wrench and got it started. I then went to the garage that installed it and they checked it out and said the starter is junk. While it has a lifetime replacement warranty, it doesn't cover the cost of installation. Now I will be paying twice to replace a starter that was workingfine

It's a STARTER, so I treat it like a light bulb

By

Comments about CARQUEST Starter - Remanufactured:

Understand that this is a STARTER so for the most part I treat it like a light bulb. I installed it into my truck & she cranked up on the 1st time as I expect it to do. The only benefit you'll get is to make sure you sign up for SPEED PERKS so that you can receive a coupon for a later date purchase.

      Comments about CARQUEST Starter - Remanufactured:

      This starter was great when new, but it began failed after 6 months in cold weather. On a first start in the cold morning, motor will turn, but gear fails to engage. (Probably a weak solenoid).
      Original starter lasted over 13 years before it failed due to corroded wire between solenoid and starter motor. Original solenoid and motor were still good. Probably should have fixed original starter instead of buying this junk.

      For some reason, Advance Auto Parts stores are not able to exchange on-line order, in-store pick-up parts under warranty. Only option they have is to return under warranty, and have customer purchase again. Big issue if ordered with on-line coupon, because now you have to pay full price. Have to order on-line again to get discount.

      I returned and purchased same part again and crossing my fingers.
      If it fails again, I will return under warranty and purchase else where. (I will loose core in that case.)
