Has anyone experienced intermittent starter problems?

Asked by Jul 22, 2015 at 01:31 AM about the 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 SLT Quad Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The starter acts like it won't engage. Replaced battery, starter, shimmed starter unshimmed starter, replaced battery cables, and still has problem. It will start fine for 20-25 starts then it won't start. It just makes a clunking sound. Any ideas?
