: Bad starter

01-22-13, 06:43 PM
For the last month my starter has been giving me problems. It would crank for two seconds and then you hear it spin freely, on the second try it would work. So I just left it alone because it wasn't that bad of an issue. Now all it does is spin and won't engage on the flywheel, luckily I'm at home and not stuck somewhere but my question to you guys is has anyone else had starter issues? The reason I ask is because I feel like going the cheap way and buying a used one for $60 instead of $150 but if more people have had common issues, then the used one will more than likely fail on me in the near future.
Thanks in advance, Josue.:cool2:

Get one online. U can get it cheaper with warranty. Don't go for used one. It just not worth

Thanks for the replies. My caddy has 134k on it so I thought it was a little odd it gave out but it did. I decided to buy it new, I rather spend a little more for lifetime warranty. :cool2:
