84 Bronco Xlt 302 starter issue
Ok, so I have a 1984 Bronco XLT 302 automatic that, about 2 months ago, started giving me problems with the starter after I replaced it. I bought the best starter they had at Autozone (which might be my first problem) and put it on. Started fine for a couple of weeks then I tried starting it one day and it just spun and didn't turn the flywheel. So I returned it thinking I got a bad starter, and the same thing happened again. Then I read there was a difference in auto and manual starters, returned it and made sure I got the one for automatic. Alas same thing keeps happening. Strange thing is, if I loosen the bolts out, jiggle the starter around,then bolt it back down, it will start a few times then just spin and not engage the flywheel. I tried this today and as I was starting it the bracket on the starter broke so I think I'm going for a better starter off of Auto Parts Warehouse. Could it be a poor quality starter from Autozone? Any ideas? Thanks guys!
