Having problems with your 1994 Chevrolet Suburban ?
We have had to replace our starter approximately 5 times-why is this, and is there something happening that we are missing?
I have had the same problem. What I have found out is that the exhaust runs right next to the starter solenoid. When it heats up it doesn't allow the solenoid to activate to engage the starter. I have been stranded for hours waiting for the solenoid to cool of and maybe it starts. Replace the starter with a mini high toque starter. They can be pricey depending on the brand but the solenoid is further from the exhaust and I havent had a problem yet. You may have to cut a small piece off the Positive terminal to get it to fit right. Hope this helps
When you remove the starter you have to turn the flywheel manually using a pry bar to check if you have any broken teeth on the flywheel if you do you have to replace the flywheel also check the ground cable that comes from the battery to the engine block.most of the times the ground cable comes loose and by it not getting good ground it burns out the starter let me know how it goes
