You could but most people replace both at the same time. The solenoid is not cheap, and if one is going bad the other is in the same condition and age.

SOURCE: Replaced starter 3 times. Replaced starter

Sounds like the Flywheel is damaged or out of alignment and it is causing a bind. Check your flywheel.

SOURCE: 1966 mustang 289. won't start,

Ignition problem... No signal from ignition to a starter draw test to confirm starter is ok --- You can run your jump wires to a remote starter button or switch to get around it for now.

I hope this helps.

I replaced the starter ,alternator ,main fuse,and new battery ...and I'm not getting any fire from the battery to crank it ....does anyone know what this problem is ??? ////98 ford explorer

Check the starter solenoid and the connections from the battery to ground, battery to fusebox, ignition key switch, neutral or park safety starting switch, solenoid, and solenoid to starter. Make sure you have ignition key switch wires connected to the solenoid - without them - the solenoid can not close to send 12V to the starter.

Replace the starter. It's not a coil, it's the solenoid. You can't get it without the starter.

Replacing the starter solenoid on a '07 Honda CRV

No. the solenoid has a plunger that hooks onto the arm that pushes the pinion into the ring gear just before the starter motor starts to spin. There is an adjustment at the pivot that has to be set for the new solenoid

I have just replaced a starter on a 2000 ford contour and when I put battery cables back on, the starter was rotating without the key

Seems your solenoid is activated or jammed. If the solenoid is part of(mounted on) the starter, it's a bad starter. Take the small ignition (starter) wire from your solenoid, it should only be hot (have power ) in the start position. The starter shouldn't turn with it removed. BobB

When replacing battery on 93 buick, starter engages

were you trying to start it before you removed the other battery?
if so the solenoid is stuck.
turn the key on and hook up the battery and let it start then turn the key off and let it die. the kick of it starting should knock the solenoid back like it should be. if it keeps trying to start you will have to pull the starter and replace the solenoid

Can I change the solenoid on my 1992 Dodge Dakota pickup, 6 cyl without removing the starter or do I have to replace the whole starter?

Most starters now a days have the solenoid integrated into the starter and are therefore irremovable. Replace the whole starter.

When I turn the key it clicks several times and then starts. After it is warm it starts without clicking

this sounds like you have a problem with the starter solenoid contacts in the solenoid.change the starter motor as it comes with the solenoid and the starter sometimes goes bad afterwards.or you can buy just the solenoid and replace it alone.

It wont start. Buying a starter but was told it might be the "cylnoid"?

Buying a solenoid without a starter is the same as buying a hamburger without the bun. The solenoid sits on top of the starter in a GM and they come out and go in as a pair. If you go in to buy a new starter it should have a new solenoid already on it. Replacing one without the other pretty much guarantees that you will be doing this job again a few months down the road for the part you didn't do this time. Hope this helps.
