A few days ago I went to Advance auto parts because my starter was giving me problems. I asked them to look up the history and the guy said the starter I bought a year and a half ago so I told him to give me another and I will pay for it and when I bring the old one back they can refund the money because it is under a lifetime warranty. He brings out one that was the same exact starter in the picture which is not the one they sold me with the bad one. That one is the original Mitsubishi style. The one pictured looks like it is for the Powerstroke and not the IDI. When he told me the one that they sold me has a one year warranty and not the lifetime which he also brought out I told him Auto Zone has it for the same amount and has a lifetime warranty so I will get it from them. The one in the picture also looks like a direct drive. I know some are using the Nippon Denso starters but the one that auto zone sold me is the Mitsubishi. Has anyone used the one in the pic above?
