  1. Good video, but the part where it uses the tester is useless 'cause if the motor starts then by force there is voltage on the positive input of the motor. The right test was to put the + of battery only to the spade connector and with the meter in ohm test between + batt input of motor and + batt output contact to motor stator

  2. Hi, i want to test the solenoid of the starter motor without to dismounting it from the car, can i do this whitout making damage? obviously i disconnect battery from the car before. Thanks. When you are writing that the internal contact of solenoid is bad in the video instead i think it's only the tester probe that doesn't make contact with metal of the bolt, it is covered of dirt.


  4. Great Video! Straight forward, scripted so we could pause and follow. Really helped me diagnose my 81 Delco Remy . Cheers

  5. Great tutorial thanks alot

  6. The solenoid is questionable, the starter could ugh see a going over but I'd use it.

  7. Thank you, This was an excellent video, that got straight to the point of exactly all the ways to test my starter/solenoid and know if it's bad or not without a bunch of unnecessary time wasting extra content. I salute you sir! Keep up the great content!
