Denso Starter Motor
  • DENSO First Time Fit® Starter Motor – Remanufactured
  • ; 1.4 kW DENSO is the OE
  • Reman Starter
  • Product Attributes:
    • Family: Denso Oe
    • Power Rating: 1.4
    • Starter Rotation: Clockwise
    • Voltage: 12.0
  • With over 60 years of experience supplying the automakers with premium electrical components, DENSO has the inside track on starter technology. The original DENSO gear-reduction starter is an industry benchmark, so rugged and powerful that it is often adapted for racing use. DENSO remanufactured starters are subjected to a rigorous test and replacement routine that produces the lowest return rates in the replacement aftermarket. Armatures and field coils are high-voltage tested; commutators are refinished and performance-validated; terminals and fasteners are replaced with high-quality copper components. And every starter is exactingly bench-tested to ensure factory-original performance. Remanufactured components offer tremendous value to consumers, and by recycling valuable parts and precious raw materials to be used again, they're the environmentally responsible choice as well. For distributors, retailers, and consumers alike, DENSO First Time Fit® remanufactured starters are the ideal choice. Features: High-voltage tested armature and field coils to ensure reliable performance; Premium copper terminals to ensure a clean source of electrical current; All-new bearings, brushes, and seals; Benefits: Maximum cranking torque under all conditions; Class leaders in size and weight; Environmentally designed to start in cold and hot weather conditions

1986 isuzu II starter switch

Question From taylortbutts on 1986 isuzu II starter switch

1986 Isuzu trooper II 2.3 , 224,000mi.
Had starter bench tested, checks ok. Wire leading from ignition to starter reads 13.5v. but won't turn over starter. If jumped from battery to starter it works fine. Not enough amps into starter? Need bigger guage wire? thanks

Response From Loren Champlain Sr

The large wire (battery cable) will show battery voltage, of course. You need to see if you are getting 12V to the small (exciter) wire with the ign. switch in the crank (start) mode.

Response From taylortbutts Top Rated Answer

Yes the primary is hot 12v. It's the exiciter that I was refering to in my post. With the ignition switch turned on, the exiciter wire is hot also 12v. Still it does'nt have enough something to throw the starter. Thanks

91 Isuzu Trooper won't turn over

Question From TrooperDriver on 91 Isuzu Trooper won't turn over

Hi, hope someone can help on this one...

1991 Isuzu Trooper V6
Manual Transmission
2/4WD

Returning to my vehicle in the parking lot a few days ago, I found I could not start it, it was completely dead. For some time before, I had been having trouble with the starter not immediately engaging the flywheel -- just sitting and spinning for several attempts before turning over. This being the case, I assumed the starter must be at fault for the not starting problem, and after getting my vehicle home I installed a new starter. This didn't help, though was probably needed anyway.

The new problem is strange. I have replaced both the battery and the whole starter, and have checked that the starter relay engages and closes. The problem is this: with the key out of the ignition, I can turn on the headlights, as usual. When I insert the key, and turn to "on", the dash lights come on, as does the radio. When I turn one more position to "start," I can hear a click (presumably the starter solenoid), and then nothing happens. The radio is dead, the dash lights are dead, the headlights won't come on, no buzzers, nothing. Turning the key back and forth, removing and replacing, trying again, doesn't help. If I go away and come back later, however, I might be able to get the normal signs of life again (as if magically fixed) but when I try to start the engine again, the whole thing dies again.

Any ideas on what is going on, and how I should proceed?

Response From Sidom Top Rated Answer

It sounds like you have a corroded connection somewhere. Clean the battery terminals & cable real well..... While the battery is disconnected trace both cable to where they connect on the engine. Take those apart & clean thoroughly as well....

Question From ahmcmahan on 99 Isuzu Rodeo Engine Trouble... HELP !!!

Having trouble, it just quit today, Thought it was a battery issue but after changing terminal and having battery tested truck will not turnover. Anyone got any ideas??/

Response From nickwarner Top Rated Answer

What terminal did you change, why did you change it and what did you put in its place? Look at the fuses first and see if the starter fuse is blown. Then see if the small wire of the solenoid lights up a test light when you turn the key to the start position. How good are your grounds?

99 Isuzu Rodeo revs but little power

Question From 99Isuszu on 99 Isuzu Rodeo revs but little power

I have a 1999 Isuzu Rodeo
2.2 cylinder 2WD 5spd manual transmission with a dual overhead cam.
It has a little over 91,000 miles on it.

It seems everything has fallen apart at once.

My big problem is the car revving high when I press the gas, but does not have any power. It doesn't slip in and out like a bad clutch, besides the clutch is brand new and the problem was pre-existing. I have a check engine light (P0140, Oxygen Sensor).

Recent work on the car (last 30 days)
New clutch (entire clutch)
New exhaust (catalytic converter, etc.)
Resealed the Valve Cover Gasket with silicon
New starter
New plugs

The oil leak I had (resealed with silicon gasket seal glue) led to the starter problem as oil leaked into the starter. It also was leading to the plug problem as oil was in the plugs and they were misfiring (they were old as well) After we (a buddy who works on cars) and I changed the plugs it smoked pretty bad for a bit because of he oil that had come out and after that was also when the car had its worst problems revving with no power. Could oil have leaked into the clutch or tranny causing it to slip? If so, will this burn off? Could the oxygen sensor be the problem? The engine idles just fine and I am out of ideas.

Response From Tom Greenleaf Top Rated Answer

That's a pretty nasty oil leak if it killed a starter etc.,

The missfire and smoke would set off an O2 code and if plenty of oil got on the friction lining of the clutch it sure could slip. When this leak is solved you probably have to replace the disc again and clean up the other parts - I don't think it will just burn off so well on its own,
