    So I took my starter off and guess what I found a crack right down the solenoid it must be a good two inches. It is a napa starter and guess what napa will not take it back for a new one.
    Thanks

    Yea I think I am going to buy a whole new starter. With the price of the core charge I will only be paying like $10.00.

    I did talk to the manager directly. I showd him the soldenoid.
    Thanks

    Napa offers 3 year and lifetime warrantes. But the SOandSOs that installed the starter did not give me the invoice so I am SOL. So for now on I am doing all of the work on my baby.
    Thanks
