Starter will not engage

Asked by May 04, 2017 at 10:21 AM about the 1987 Ford F-150 STD Standard Cab 4WD LB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

New motor, new flexplate, new starter, new transmission, new starter solenoid, new battery. Truck started good a few times then starter will not engage all the way. Starter is grinding on the ring gear.  OK so we changed the starter three times. Starts a few times then same problem occurs.  

1 Answer

My truck is doing the same exact thing I'm on the third starter I'm freaking out it's like they have a bad listing at the parts store. 9413068459 please text me if you find a fix
