has any body had a problem(s) with a starter on a 5sfe?

had it replaced twice now. still doing the same old thing........ intermittent start.
have checked all wires they seem ok, also tried lightly tapping the solenoid.... still nothing?
could it be a faulty starter relay??

need a rebuilt.
really its just the connector and the plunger that needs to be change.

have you try to wire it up with a relay? have a look in the tech section
GT-Four Group A Rallye, Carlos Sainz Edition # 21 out of 150.
Gen 4 ST215 engine conversion, FMIC, Hatech Elite 1500, Forged CP pistons, ST205 rear calipers, front ST205 yet to install.

Nope you don't need a relay, and if you've replaced it twice then the solenoid is fine.
I think you'll find that the problem is caused by the 20 year old ground wires in the vehicle which have a high voltage drop across them.
The first place to start is to replace the engine and body ground wires and battery terminals with bosch items off the shelf at repco. This is the best place to begin as it costs around $20 and I have fixed starting problems on about half a dozen vehicles with this so far.

yep thats the problem.

I have done a write up on how to do this on toymods. follow the steps and it will be fine. $20 fix.

I will put it here in in the tech section.

As mentioned, grounds and battery connections. Find your start relay, trace the earth to the body and either clean or replace it. Same with battery to body earth. Also check the relay input connection. Corrosion is the enemy

Can anyone tell me where the starter relay is. If I am right it's in the left hand kick panel as that is where I hear clicking.
