Re: Need HELP!!! NOT STARTING!!! WTF!!!

Starter with new heat shield- $107 (discount), to remove and install new starter- 5 hours, band aids for cuts and scrapes- 3, redbox movie- $1, jeep back on the road before the snow-storm- PRICELESS!

Didn't remove the shaft! I wasn't too comfortable with that so I went through the wheel-well after I removed the plastic cover. Man, they really don't make it easy to work on your cars these days. Taking the starter off was a pain but putting it back on wasn't too bad. However, with the new heat shield (looks the same BTW) upper bolt hole being relocated, it was EVEN HARDER TO PUT BACK ON! I hope it doesn't hurt anything but after almost 2 hours of trying to get it in I said F*CK this and just left it off. I tightened the bottom bolt tight in hopes it will compensate for the upper bolt not being in place. I guess I'll see what happens. What could possibly happen, it's just a dinky heat shield.

CROSSING MY FINGERS! LOL

Thanks for all of your feedback guys! I appreciate it!

Re: Need HELP!!! NOT STARTING!!! WTF!!!

Why do some folks buy a new heat shield? My old one was fine and just bolted up on the new starter.

Re: Need HELP!!! NOT STARTING!!! WTF!!!

because the new starters have superceeded to a slightly different starter that one of the 2 mounts for the heat shield was relocated...

I put a starter in my 4.7 while I was doing the work to it (preventative maintainence, only cost me 54 dollars for a mopar unit ). I knew about this updated parts but our slightly special-ed parts guy just looked at me crosseyed instead of actually looking for the part. So mine ended up getting installed with only one bolt holding the shield in too (ended up getting the jeep started the night before thanksgiving with about 20 minutes to close, I wasnt going to push it out again because I was waiting on stupid parts guys). I bent it up a little to try to prevent rattling, ultimately Im sure it will sag over time but for now it will do.

Glad it worked out for you! considering it was in the driveway with handtools I would say you did excelent, i am pretty sure flatrate is up in the 3.0-3.5 range on a 5.7l

for me. it was the starter. single faint click and nothing... behavior is like a dead batt but lights and everything works! I have a lil over 40k... have autozone or what have check your alternator/battrry and if it checks out then it may more than likely be your starter. Good luck buddy!

$160? Not bad for a starter and labor! Awesome man! if it doesn't stop raining you might have to put pontoons on the JGC! Happy holidays!
