Hi, welcome to Just Answer. I’m Ron and I’ll be helping youtoday.Before we get started though, Please understand that I don't knowyour skill level or tools you have to assist us. Also understand thatI can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle either, so patience isappreciated. JA is a great Q/A site, but it does NOT replace arepair shop.My goal is to make you happy and get a great rating in return formy time. Sometimes I have to give you bad news that I know youdidn’t want to hear, so please don’t shoot the messenger.
That starter was probably rebuilt and NOT new, so the mica on the armature was never serviced. That's why you now need a NEW starter so this won't happen again.
Hi, I'm following up to see if you have any more questions.
