What could cause a 2 yr old starter to go bad
We got a 2003 Taurus from my mother law that had been sitting in her garage for a yr.The car only had 22,000 miles on it! We had to put a starter on it soon after we got it. 2wks ago we put an altinator and battery. Know the Starter is bad.
If it was a rebuilt starter, I can see how it failed already. Have it tested at a local auto parts store for make sure that's what it is. BTW: Cars don't like sitting around, they need to be driven.
Unfortunately, most of the inexpensive rebuilders ship everything to the Phillipines or a third-world country for cheap labor and we get cheap products. Our shop won't buy anything that isn't locally remanufactured - more expensive - yes. But then we can call so-and-so's Auto Electric and talk to the guy who rebuilt it and get it handled.
