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

    Don't ever waste your money on this horrible starter!!! I bought my first one on 7/4/16 to replace my original starter that was 13 years old. The new one died on 10/27/16!!!! Only lasted 4 months!! Took it back and exchanged it for another one and tried it again. Worked great until this one died on 1/4/17!!! Lasted little over 2 months this time!!! Absolutely ridiculous. I'm not one to complain all the time but I need to warn everybody not to buy one of these starters and waste your money.

    My truck is old but is still dependable. Didn't want to spend money for new one. I've been using my remanufactured starter for 6 weeks and it's been reliable.

    Comments about CARQUEST Starter - Remanufactured:

    It's a good quality rebuilt starter.
    Only issue you will have is if it's on a 5.4 triton engine. If starter has never been removed then it will seem almost impossible to remove 3 simple bolts but don't give up 13mm socket with extension and ratchet 1/4 inch anything else won't work. Use wd40 dry off with a rag to keep out of your eyes then just get you some leverage once bust loose you got it. A glove on your hand on the end of ratchet will be a good idea cause it will hurt when they break loose. No room for wrenches or whatever you think you can use is simply out of the equation. Good luck this took me 3 hrs to change on 2004 Ford F-150 4x4.

      This starter was bought on recommendation from the stores employee. So far it has worked out great for me, turns my motor a lot faster than my original.
      I got 20% off by ordering online and going to pick it up at the store.
