  1. having problems with my 88 coupe i change the starter twice even the selenoid valve my car was working good till yesterday night i got in my car and it didnt start i think its an electrical problem maybe the wiring idk what you guys think ??
  2. Do you ever loose electrical power to the interior lights? If so, it is probably a bad battery connection, a little more detail about what exactly is going on would be more helpful.
  3. no i bought a new battery just to check it thinkin the same thing but it wasnt the battery its the starter im pretty sure but changing the starter twice within two months DAMN ! is that normal ?
  4. Deff not normal. In the five or six years I've had my car, never had to change the starter. You might want to check your solenoid to make sure it isn't staying engaged after the engine starts up. My buddy's 90 gt started having that problem, after he let the key go it would continue to keep the starter engaged.
  5. I Know Right.. I Dont Think Its Gettin a spark From The Selenoid To the starter Its Starting To get Frustrating but w.e by the way nice pony bro thanks for the help much appreciated
  6. Is it not cranking or anything? I had something like this- spent MONTHS trying to figure it out. A new ground cable (starter to fender solenoid) fixed it!
  7. might be a ground cable not makin contact cus the first time the starter was cranking but wouldnt start im going to try that
  8. Do you get sparks from the starter solenoid when you turn the key?
