Problems with the starter...or maybe something bigger. SUCCESS!!
Posted 12 April 2004 - 11:43 PM
The swap went very smooth...no big problems except the EGR valve being in the way. I went to start the car after i did the swap, and the motor turned over for about 3 seconds and then just quit. I turned the key again, and all i got was a *click* Now that is all i get every time i turn the key is the *click* from the starter. I came to the conclusion that maybe my starter had kicked the bucket, so i nabed another starter from my parts car, and threw it on, and guess what....same thing. i still just get a *click* from the starter everytime i turn the key.
So now my guess is that i have an electrical issue. I have cleaned and tightened my battery terminals, made sure the starter was hooked up nice and tight, but to no avail.
So here is my riddle....I can only hope the answer is an easy one....but that just wouldn't be my luck these days. As always any and all suggestions are welcome. Thanks for the help in advance.

by the way how is the battery? a low or bad battery will give you a click and no start as well.
the correct way to check the battery cables is to put one lead at the battery lug(pos lead pos lug)then connect the groung lead to the starter side of the cable. crank the motor or click it in your case. any reading over .5 volts means you either have bad connections or a wasted cable. do the same on the ground cable as well as it can cause just the same problem.
