Does the starter crank the engine over? Saying your truck won't start could mean that the starter spins be the engine won't fire. If the starter is not spinning is it at least clicking?

Your starter solenoid is probably bad if the battery is good. Not sure if you can get just the solenoid or you have to buy the whole starte. Also check to make sure the cables are tight not only on the battery but the starter as well

sounds like the starter is not engaging the flywheel if the starter make noise like a power saw and the engine is not cranking may be the starter solenoid is not working I have seen this happen whit brand new starters now before you change your starter again ask some one to turn the key for you and see if the crankshaft or any otter pulley is rotating. if noting turn then replace the starter again and ask them to tested for you at the store and see if the gear comes out like it shut. If you see the crankshaft and pulleys rotating but the engine wont start you have otter problem if the engine hardly turn whit a fully charge battery or jump start from another car take all spark plugs off and tray again whit out the spark plugs if coolant comes out of the engine you have a floated cylinder and a blown head gasket. Note may be a good idea to change your battery clamps wile you are at it or at leas clean then using a wire brush bad contact on battery clamps causes to lose power doing start. hope can help you good luck. :)

it could be the starter. there are two sets of brushes in the starter, when they get worn down, they start to lose contact and it gets weak.
is there an oil leak that has the starter all oily? oil leaks are hard on starters.
It could also be the battery cables, or terminals.
Scrape the inside of the terminals with a pocket knife, to make sure there is no crust.
also make sure there is no corrosion in the cable under the insulation
take a blade and slice open the cable insulation up by the terminal enough to get a peak at the wire inside. If there is white frosty corrosion in there, its best to replace it.
You can also try cleaning it real good with an alkylin base cleaner like purpe power cleaner.
The electrons flow on the outside of the wire, if there is corrosion on the wire it can hinder the current.
also check the ground cable to the engine..
I hope this info helps save some time or money.

On top of the starter unplug the solenoid wire. Then make a jumper wire with a spade connector on one end about four feet. plug this into the solenoid and use the other end of the wire to tap the positive side of the batt. this should engage the starter if all is well. if it dosen't, then the problen is the starter.
