Just this last weekend I noticed when I started my truck I thought the starter sounded funny and there was a rattling coming from underneath, so I climbed under it and found that the screws holding the solenoid had backed out and it was just hanging on by the plunger going into the starter. Long story short I put locktight on it and but back in and broke one of the studs off the back of the solenoid.:doh: So seeing as how NO one in town could sell me just a solenoid I bought a reman starter from Oreilleys and put it in. 200 bucks lifetime warrenty. spins ALOT faster so i guess my old starter was wearing down. Truck starts so much better.
