(First post!) Loyale starter problems?
Posted 29 October 2003 - 11:12 AM
I just purchased a 93 Loyale a few weeks back. When purchased it had 103K, ran great, had all the maintenance records, and my wife even liked it!
Last week after the car had sat for a couple of days, I went to start it, and nothing? I figured I door had been left ajar and the dome light drained the battery....I jumped it and went on my way,
got to town (25 mile trip) and again had to jump it? I left it running when I got home, and checked the output of the alternator 13.8 (little low). I checked the battery with the engine
turned off, it was around 9 volts. So I thought the battery was
failing. Put in a different battery (charged, but not new), car started with some hesitation, but started...this lasted two days.
whent to start it today...and nothing I checked all connections, wires, and grounds, all seem to be intact, the battery was at 10.2 volts Car started with a jump, I checked the alternator, 14.6, let it run for a 20 minutes, shut it off, tried to start it again, and nothing...Could the starter be going to ground?
I have never had a Soob starter go bad (two ea81s and 2 ea82s),
so I'm kind of stumped? I was thinking about pulling the starter
and alternator and having them tested in town, but thats a 50 mile round trip, I'm trying to avoid....Sorry for the long description,
and thanks for your help in advance.

Anyone know if the alternator off an 87 ea82T will swap?
(the poor 87 GL Turbo Wagon gave up the ghost after hitting
two dear last year.... ). Otherwise, I'll pull it and have it
