    I just replaced my starter on my 85 ford 250 desiel. It was super hot too. I think it has to do with wiring but I'm not sure. It's a brand new starter and it fired up the truck on the first crank. I shut the truck off 15 min later, and then 20 min later the starter motor was super hot. Is my new starter bad?

Yes, replace your starter before a fire breaks out.

I have a 99 jeep grand cherokee laredo 4.0 drove 20 miles went in store came out it acted as if it wanted to turn over then acted as if battery died. i got a jump start but the car then did not try to turn...



If the starter dims the lights noticeably when activated the starter is the culprit. If it got stuck and ran with the engine the bearing will cease and the starter will not turn. Dry bendix and or bearings will prevent starter to swing. If the rotor is touching the field coils it will short and will not turn.

After driving for a while and shutting my jeep off it will not restart without sitting for a few hours


It sounds like a bad starter solenoid/starter, because a starter sits so close to a engine and exhaust that over the years the heat starts breaking down the components and when you drive your Jeep the starter solenoid gets "heat soaked" so when you've been driving your Jeep around for awhile and then turn it off the solenoid is "heat soaked", it needs to cool off before it will engage the starter again. Sometimes it can take up to a few hours to work again. Some people hit the starter w(the engine off) with a hammer to try to free it up.

The solution is to replace the starter with a new one and your Jeep will start up every time. Most starters come with a new solenoid already attached so it's best to replace them both.

Not sure which engine you have, but here is diagram for 4-banger. I can get the others, but I think the starter curcuit will be the same. This may not be readable after download. Starter circuit is in upper left. I also attached a blowup that is better res.

Hi I have a 96 jeep cherokee country. It will start, I will drive it a distance, can be short or long, then shut it off. When I go to start it again, it won't start. After it sits for a while sometimes...


It sounds like your starter. Sometimes when starters get old the armature and/or field windings swell when they get hot. The reason is rather complex but I can tell you this is the most likely problem and the only fix is to replace the starter.

Jeep won't start has power to lights but won't turn over


The starter is a good possibility. Try tapping the starter with a small hammer while trying to start it. Sometimes the brushes in the starter get dirty and tapping it will jar them loose. If the jeep starts then replace the starter. If the jeep does not start, take a test light and see if you are getting voltage to the big nut on the starter while trying to start it. If it's getting 12 volts and the jeep does not start, then replace the starter.
