Thoughts on no start

Mike,

I see lots of great advise about tracing the fault on your starter
problem. I have had the same problem on my car for several years.
Years ago I attempted to find the problem. After a few hours with no
luck, I decided to live with it. Usually my starter works normally.
But, about one time in twenty, I get the click you hear with no starter
motor noise. I have always assumed it was a dead spot in the starter
motor, and I was just unlucky finding that spot in line with some
internal electrical connection . In those early years I would get out
and push start the car. Finally, after a few push starts over the first
year or two, I decided to just continue turning the key over. This
works reasonably well. Within about ten attempts, the starter motor
will engage, and everything is back to normal. I suppose when it gets
so bad that I'm out pushing again, I will pull up yesterday's list serve
and trace out my problem.

Good Luck,
Arnold,
Johns Island, SC
