Have you bench tested the starter?

Customer reply replied 13 years ago
No, but we removed it and still no luck.
Ford Mechanic: lamontgomery, Ford Mechanic replied 13 years ago
removed and replaced it with a known good starter?
Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 13 years ago
No , but should I not be able to turn motor over with no glow plugs installed and no starter with 2 foot braker bar on crank bolt. I hope it is just a starter.
Ford Mechanic: lamontgomery, Ford Mechanic replied 13 years ago
Bench test the starter, hopefully it is simple as that. If something came loose internally, there might be metal debris on the glow plug(s). These engines are a pain to turn over by hand.

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
