Nate, that is typical behavior for an SUV driver. They all think that since they have dual cup holders for their Starbuck's Latte's, they can talk on the cell and change lanes without using turn signals! :mad: I see this all the time where I live (population 23,000). They are people who sold high dollar real estate in the bay area and moved to the Sierra Nevada foothills where homes cost about half as much as they do down there. That leaves them enough $$$ to buy an SUV and commute everyday to their silicon valley jobs :rolleyes: . They are no better than the "carpetbaggers" of old.

Stupid Useless Vehicle grin :p

If they pull that carp on me when I am in my truck, I just blast them with the air horn I put in last year and I don't move over. It's mounted under the hood, so no one suspects it's there.......... wink grin

My foot starter has started spinning only if I push at the very top. Sometimes I have to try twice before it engages. It spins fine when engaged.
Possably dirty contact or out of adjustment? I haven't tried to take it apart to look yet. Any thoughts guys?

brsdb: Try looking at tne electrical switch, it is mounted on top of the starter. Unscrew it and look at the contacts; mine acted like yours and it was worn contact in this switch. Got a new one at local parts house , don't remember the price but it was cheap.

I believe Napa has the switch for on top of the starter, I think for less than $10.00
