Asked by Jan 11, 2016 at 10:45 PM about the 2000 GMC C/K 2500 Series Crew Cab Short Bed 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Runs beautifully smooth when it runs. cranks but does not 'catch'/start, then
crews up starter. Replace starter and coil and it runs for a week and then
won't again, and starting to realize I will eat up another starter if I don't stop but
thought I'd ask before I chew up another starter! It won't start with ether either.
