starters

why cant anyone make a good reliable starter for our trucks.

I just got in the house from pulling the starter out of my F250 I looked at the bill and I have just under 15 months on it .. sure it is a lifetime warranty from Napa but it still pisses me off that the stock one lasted 9 years and I cant keep a new premium napa on for more then 15 months

I have to change the one on my 550 flatbed pretty much every year too.. but I can understand it starts and shuts off more in one year then most cars do in 10 years

ok end of rant

Do you recall if you purchased a new or rebuilt/re-manufactured starter? When ever I buy a part I always ask for new parts and try to get factory OEM or a high end aftermarket. None of the cheap auto parts store brand, lifetime warranty or not, they just don't last!

Been through this myself. After changing the starter two times this past winter in foot deep snow. I went and spent money on a Ford Motorcraft starter. I figured if it lasted me the longest the first time. I am done playing with these life time warranty ones from the local parts store.

Sure it cost me 200 dollars or so from the dealer. Sure it only has 1 year warranty. But I am tired of swapping starters so I took the gamble.

Junkyard by me won't sell just the starter. They say it is a component of the engine. There for if you want the starter you buy it for the cost of the whole engine and you get the whole engine with starter.
