STARTER 2004 gmc sierra 2500 hd

Asked by Oct 12, 2016 at 09:38 AM about the 2004 GMC Sierra 2500HD 4 Dr SLE 4WD Crew Cab SB HD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Trying to figure out why my truck blows through
starters. I replaced starter 2- 3 years ago.  Then
had to replace again last year. Last year I installed
a brand new one.  Truck stayed acting up and
starter was furthest from my mind.  Decided to
give it a whack this morning just in case amd sure
enough the truck turned over.
  Are they simply making crap starters and I keep
getting a defective one or is there a reason I fried
my 3rd starter in 4 years?  Of course the place I
bought the new starter from Car Quest has been
bought out. Won't be returning that one I guess
  Any help would be great before I waste more time
and money

Dont buy the car quest junk, get yourself the A/C Delco brand

Advance auto is still basically carquest and in my area they are honoring the carquest warranty. Now on to your problem, I have a rig come into my shop that had gone through 4 starters in 2 years, so after checking all of the power and grounds wires he decided to put on a newer gear reduction starter assembly, cost a little but he has never had another starter problem and it has been 3 years now. Might be worth thinking about, just make sure the wiring is in good condition.

Thanks I appreciate it. Advanced auto exchanged it For me after checking serial number. He basically iluded to what Joemom had said saying there's a lot of junk out there. A buddy of mine said there was a possibility the fly wheel may have damage and could cause starters to wear out quick. Been able to avoid costly repairs by doing things myself but that's above my pay grade. Luckily when I looked on after removing starter everything was in good shape. I just installed new starter and I'll see how long it lasts. If it goes I'll take your advice and upgrade the starter. Now I'm off to see if I can get my horn working so I can get it inspected. She's an old girl that's slowly breaking down. Can't wait to see what questions I'll have on the next repair LOL thanks again fellas
