Last winter my E started getting sluggish to start on cold mornings. The starters was slow and laboring, but it always kicked over after around the second or third try. I had a mechanic that was replacing the clutch in my A/c compressor do a quick load test and he said everything was in spec and that I should not worry about it untill the flip side of summer when it started getting cold again. Last week it started doin it again, pretty bad, despite the hot day. It finally came to a pt were it would not start and simply click once, even with a jump. I went ahead and split the manifold to try and jump the starter, but I gues the way the starter and solenoid are unitized does not allow for this. I went ahead and replaced the started and now it just sounds like the bendix is not engaging and spinning with intermitint grinds. Is there a way to adjust the spacing between the bendix and the fly? It did not seem so. Anyone have any ideas?
