Urgent, truck won\'t start, can\'t figure it out I put a new starter in it, battery and charge are fine, solenoid is used but not old(month at the most) and it just clicks. Thats it, just clicks. I can't move the truck at all, have to get up and be at work by 6 in the morning so there is no time to get more parts or anything. I just bought the starter, its a reman unit, I bought a starter for an 85 chevy cause the one for the damn 97 is about $170. This is my 97 Vortec truck. Only thing I could think is the starter doesn't have enough power to turn over the motor cause Vortecs have a little higher compression, but that doesn't make sense when you consider my dad runs a starter off one of my K5s to turn over his 11:1 compression race motor. I learned that the bedsides on a newer truck give quite well and don't dent from repeated punches. Knuckles bleed though. Why is it everytime I spend a lot of money on a vehicle to get out from under things breaking every other day, things still break every other day?
