Just installed a new starter on a Chevy 2500 express van

Customer Question

Just installed a new starter on a Chevy 2500 express van with the 5.7l. I compared new and old and they looked identical, installed the new and connected the wires the same way as the old. Lowered the van off of my lift and as soon as I made contact with the neg batt terminal, it started turning over real fast. Key wasn't even in the ignition. Any ideas?

What year is your van?

Did you change the old starter because it was dead or just intermittent?
