Took battery to Firestone where it was ourchased 3 yrs prior, Replaced battery and started normally rest of this day but next day would not start. I looked up possible reasons, found possible parasitic drain. Disconnected battery negative terminal and used meter to find -11 to -12 volt drain, disappeared when I removed fuel pump fuse. It dropped to almost zero. I didn't know what to do with this info.
Called a friend and he came over, talked me into believing it was the starter, showed me wear on the teeth and I was like, OK. Replaced with new starter, started first few times, let run for about 15 minutes killed it and could not restart. Just click click click, like a fast tapping, no grinding sounds. Friend now wants to replace fly wheel, I said HOLD UP. While the cost is relatively cheap, I don't know if I agree with the diagnosis.
Thank you, any info or direction is appreciated.
have the same problem?
