Have Ford Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi Im David, after the starter was replaced do you still hear it trying to engage?
if so, is it a loud hard click or a series of clicks?
a loud hard click, so we need to look at the voltage drop at the battery when trying to start.
just make sure the voltage is reading around 12.5 before trying to start. then make sure it doesnt drop below 9.6 when trying to start
I gotta get my butt to my shop, Ill be back on in about an hour........
still need assistance?
did you do what i suggested and what was the result?
still a loud hard click huh?
if thats the case, im going to need you to manually rotate the crankshaft with a ratchet and socket.. you can remove the serpentine belt to make it easier on you. i want to make sure the fly wheel isnt the cause of whats happening
and if it rotates ok. you will need to check the big fat cable to the starter. even if it looks ok, take it off, slice the insulation back about an inch, take a wire brush to it clean her up reconnect it and do the same to the positve cable on the battery. even if it looks ok.
do you still require assistance?
