Dont overlook the electrical portion of the ignition sys. its located on the steering colum just where it goes under the dash,there is a rod that the key portion pulls on to operate this.and they do go bad in fact ford recalled many of these for overheated circuits and vehicle fires. not trying to scare you just making you aware as far as the starter itself it could be and with the vehicle age I would replace as P.M good piece of mind for you. have a good day DB

1991 Ford taurus starts when its cold then once it gets warm and you shut it off it wont start until it cools off again

Did you replace the ignition distributor stator? they are the real problem not the TFI ignition module. See part below. You must remove the distributor to replace this part, it would also be a good idea to run a fault code test on the EEC 4 engine control system.

My 1998 mazda 4cyl at times will not connect the starter action, have replaced the starter,sylenoid,ignition switch,everything is ON guages etc. but ignition only works off and . Then you rock the car or...

It could be as simple as a poor connection on the starter solenoid wire. Is it a push-on connector? One could do a little checking. When the starter won't work, test for power on the solenoid wire when key is held in crank. If power there, clean the connector, and check if starter works. No power? Then move to the neutral safety switch, check for power leaving the switch, key in crank, and clutch depressed. Power should be passing through the switch.
Another thing to check is all your grounds-the battery, the engine ground, computer harness ground.

I'm not familiar with this model Toyota, but I once fixed a similar problem by spraying WD-40 lubricant into the ignition switch. It was sticking in the "start" position, keeping the starter engaged.
Try lubricating your push-button switch. If that doesn't work, replace it.
The repair place might have thought the starter solenoid (which supplies the serious electricity to the starter motor) was sticking "on," but that's unlikely. Those solenoids usually fail in the off position. So it's quite possible there was nothing wrong with your original starter ... and you might want to discuss that with your repair place if the button turns out to be the problem.

I have replaced ignition switch, ignition box, upper solenoid, and starter on my F 150 302 auto trans truck. My starter still sticks What next?

Sticks as in Hangs in flywheel - or sticks as in stays on?

302 has several starters. Some with subtle differences that shops and parts stores often mix/confuse. Wrong starter will often hang in flywheel.

If sticking is "staying on" - powered after key is released, Please disregard.

Pt wont start or turn over

try to get a jump from a friend and see what happens, does the same, faulty starter, may need replacing, try to use small hammer and tap lightly on the starter couple time and have a friend start the car while you tap lightly on it. check ignition switch where you stick the key in. stick the key in the ignition and turn the key back and forth jiggle and wiggle it and see if your igniting will make contact. do it several time to test and see if its the ignition problems, this part is not cheap to replace.
