Electric Starter sticks when cold
My starter pinion (Bendix) doesn't engage when the engine is first started but works fine after running for a while. The starter turns fine either way.
When I had a clutch problem diagnosed a month ago, the shop left the sled uncovered out in the rain. Could moisture have gotten in there to cause it to freeze up?
Is there anything I can lube to prevent this from happeneing? Would drying it out with a portabe heater help?
Any help will be appreciated. Maybe some of you car guys have seen this before?
