    OF, I know you're joking now but just wait until you get froggy passing a couple of semis. The 5.0 is so powerful that you can go from 75 to 105 in a couple of seconds like passing a pair of semis. I know because it happened to me. I was shocked by how quickly it accelerated. There seems to be no top end or lack of fuel/air. I just goes really fast and does it more quickly at higher speeds. Hey Hey, be careful out there.

    I read that they just "overbuild" them for the use. The lifetime shouldn't be any different than a normal starter. Be interesting to compare the replacement costs for like vehicles.
    Looking at a couple of GM dealer sites for pricing I find starters about 80 percent more than the nominal $100-139 for the other engine of similar structure. Sites were sott of discount for A CDelco parts. Rockauto doesn't have them yet from aftermarket sources.
  • Re: No dash/tail lights. 2000 Impala.

    Looked around internet for others with same problem. Others had replaced headlight switch. But I noticed one said replacing rear defroster relay fixed his. They're different circuits he thinks but he had noticed the rear defroster quit working; he may have meant it quit when the fuse blew that caused the dash/taillights to quit.

    Anyhow, before looking at the circuit diagrams, I'd suggest pulling the relay for the rear defroster. See if the problem goes away. No charge to just pull it--don't replace unless it fixes problem.

    I don't understand why the ignition switch might cause the problem to show up.

    Good luck and hope that works for you.

    Spent the day at the National Museum of the United States Air Force in Dayton. Highly recommended for anyone who happens to be in the area.
    Glad you enjoyed your visit here in our area. The Presidential Hangar is open for tour again but you have to take a bus into the base after you've signed up to get to the Presidential Hangar.

    If you take your time to read the informational signs, it's a two day visit for most people.

    @sda says, "driving along smartly in our 95 degree weather. Windows down, a/c probably out. "

    Ouch. We haven't had the usual high temps like that this summer--yet. Global cooling LOL.
