BOUGHT MY 95 98 IN NOVEMBER 09 RAN PERFECT UNTIL JUNE 10 WHEN STARTER QUIT, BOUGHT NEW STARTER AND WORKED FOR NINE DAYS THEN WOULDN'T START, JUST CLICKS, AFTER SITTING FOR A FEW HOURS STARTS RIGHT UP. THIS HAPPENED SEVERAL TIMES AND REPLACED STARTER TWO MORE TIMES ALWAYS WITH SAME RESULTS.

check the positive battery cable. it has 2 cables stacked on each other. the bottom cable corrodes with the spacer with the results you explain. remove and thoroughly clean all contact surfaces.
