Average Mileage: 171,500 mi (141,000 mi - 202,000 mi)


If the vehicle will not crank over, the most common problem is the starter, which tend to fail at about 100,00-125,000 miles. Sometimes it is only the starter solenoid contacts, but often the complete starter (including solenoid) needs to be replaced.

    In the morning when I try and start my truck I just get a single click sound. This happens 3 or more times of turning the key but then eventually starts normally.

    Starter won't work. Battery good and tried jumping but same effect. We can catch it off and it runs fine. Either starter or electrical between battery and starter.
