Question about 2001 Saturn SC
After I was able to diagnose that the new starter I first received was defective, I reinstalled the old starter that the store checked and claimed was good. It finally acted up while I had the car on the ramps. The old starter was starting as desired when finally on one key turn, it failed to turn over. After checking I had the power to the solenoid, I gave it a tap on the solenoid and the starter began to crank again. In shopping for replacement starters, I've found out that performance data in the box doesn't mean the starter will be functional. Many that I looked at were missing the water drain debris plugs. Some were even broken in the box, and one store tried to pass it off saying it was remanents from another starter since that company reused boxes. And in-store checks for starters are only as good as the people running it. I took the same starter in twice, and got two different results (good and horribly bad).
