just had starter replaced, mechanic now things it sounds weird

5 posts in this topic

I had my starter replaced in my '01 chevy silverado about a month ago. Had the oil changed today and the guy wants me to bring it back in tomorrow to check out the starter. It's working fine, but he thinks it sounds weird "like there's too much air going through it".

If they do replace the starter they installed a month ago, should I expect to pay the whole bill again for a new starter? Should the part have any warranty? Thanks.

No charge at all, but make sure before the replace is done.

Most shops have a 12 month/12k mile warranty. Most parts stores offer at least the same. If its less than a month and the starter is the cause than there should be no additional charges. As shack mention it doesn't hurt to ask!

That's what I was thinking, but wanted to get other opinions. Thanks a lot guys!

Airjer brought up a great point.

The standard for years for a warranty has been the 12/12. I have heard of a 6 month/6000 and I have heard of a 90day situation.

All dealers have the minimum 12 month, 12,000 miles warranty (some major repairs come with longer) and most After-market shops have this as well.

I also have heard (in the case of a starter) the labor to replace will be limited, but the part will be warranted longer or for "Life".

Might be a great idea to ask them what the warranty you have on your new starter.

Also run of thumb, having it replaced under the warranty does not start the warranty over again, but it might just be a good idea to ask about this also.

Good luck!

    • That's rough DrJ, were you on public or private land?   
    • They're finally playing someone outside of the central division tonight, so we'll see what happens. Did Sano get suspended for throwing a punch yesterday?
    • OK, to go back to original question, how much current do the 12 volt pumps used in those sort of systems use?   I can go look up the information and figure it out, but I hoped someone here already knew the answer.  
    • DonBo, good luck on your bow quest,  your father raised you well!  What a great way to celebrate life by sharing a hunt together.
    • My family has LIfe 360 on our phones. It allows you to know exactly where that phone is at all times. My teenage kids were not to hip on the idea until my wife explained that you either have the app or you don't have a phone. It already saved a phone. My son dropped his phone in the middle of a bean field last summer.  We were able to use the app to drive a wheeler to within 10ft. Well worth it.
    • My personal opinion on the backup pumps is that they are a stop gap to buy you enough time to minimize the amount of water that backs up during a torrential storm while you get your primary pumps on a generator.    Obviously the biggest factor is to figure out how much water can enter the drainage system during the heaviest downpours and that can help you decide what gpm you need to stay ahead of the water. If you get a bigger backup pump then you will burn through a battery faster.    If you don't get a lot of water in the system ever and if the sump pump only runs periodically during even heavy rains and wet weather then you can get more run time from a smaller system.    There really isn't a way to say exactly what you need to be 100%safe unless you know exactly what flows you have.
    • Already doing many of these.  It's slowly improving.
    • I was just getting some info on this unit: http://www.zoellerpumps.com/en-ap/product/63-basement-sentry#features     I am sure you could hook up multiple batteries as well
    • Sunday, pulled a group of 3 toms from about 500 yds across private into the public only to hang up at 60 yds. We worked them for 2 hrs and they never got in front of the blind. They finally got closer, but instead of going in front of the blind, they got behind the blind at about 5 yards inside the woodline and could hear them stepping on twigs. Man what a rush. Sadly, they walked back onto private and out of our lives LOL. Kinda wish I was hunting with a shotgun!   3 or 4 gobblers were rattling off behind us in the woods in the morning and shut up by 7. The 3 that we got to come in from private were to the other side and they didn't gobble til they were close enough to see/hear our setup. Those two hours were between 8 and 10. Will try again.
