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!

    • better late than never!!  so far it's not to late any way!
    • I'm curious about the GenieJar.  Looks like there is a 30oz and a 17oz version.  I wonder how it works in fairly cold weather.  The nice thing about styrofoam is that it insulates against the entire water mass freezing into a minnow-sicle.  I wonder if they recommend throwing it inside your jacket or something. 
    • Agreed. I am getting nervous about the state of out financial situation now, well, I guess getting MORE nervous. Toward the back end of the contract Parise's deal isn't so bad since it was front loaded, but the term is so long. IMO we cannot afford any more buyouts. Pominville is such a buzzkill. Koivu has really played great the last 1 plus this year. No, he isn't going to win many races for the puck, but as long as he isn't on the top line I am OK with that. Staal is doing a little better than I had hoped I guess. I was hoping just for solid play, but there have been a few games where he and Coyle we so strong on the puck the opposition couldn't get control of it.
    • Hey Star, I wouldn't leave the fan there. It's going to get really HOT and will melt ! Move it to the bottom of the cabinet just left of the gas valve and have it blowing up so it pushes the heat out the vents on the top half of the heater.
    • I agree with the backing for the fly line.  Never had any problems and the stuff seems to get better with age.
    • Best thing I've found is backing for fly line.  It has no memory and virtually no knots.  It's better situated for rattle wheels because of the physical size of the backing but I've not had any problems yet with my Frabil tip-ups.  Deepest water we fish in is only 30' with normal depth of around 12'.  Our local Runnings sells 50 yard segments for like $3 each in any color. 
    • The next year my Mom and Dad cooked the turkey in one of those white roasters and it was awesome.  So I told her that too.  Big time.  It was nice and juicy too.
    • i believe it is their first year, one of the guys used to work for Ice Castle at the Pine River plant.  They have videos on you tube.  I have seen them on Facebook and you tube, the house looks nice, but it is not something I would buy.
