Starting issue

Asked by Jun 14, 2016 at 07:27 AM about the 1995 GMC Sierra 1500 K1500 SLE 4WD Extended Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I got in my truck and turned the key. it was turning over and just as it was about to fire it stopped. I turned the key off and tried to start it again and now it wont turn over. I thought my starter got stuck so I climbed under and smacked it a few times to get it to drop but it didn't work. Since all of my lights work and all of my connections are good (I checked them all then unplugged and plugged my battery back in) I am thinking that my starter did get stuck but probably needs replaced...... I have been meaning to get a new starter because it turns over quite a bit before firing up. I just wanted a second opinion before I ordered one.
