The starter solenoid probably went to heaven.

yep thats wut it is. if you question us then take a stethiscope and get some1 to crank the motor it will click if the solenoid is working and if that happens then there is no teeth on the flywheel but if it dont click then theres your problem

well i just took my starter to get it checked out....

1.) the solonoid is good! :~)

2.) the barenks (not sure on spelling) shaft might be stripped out.

3.) the clutch inside the starter is bad

my local starter shop told me that they "CAN" and will fix hey in 2 days :~)

it is only gonna cost me $100... thats much better that $618 for a new one.

Look around town to see if you have anyone that knows how to rebuild starters and altenators. Here in SC I know someone who rebuilds them for $30. Only thing is that it takes him about a day to rebuild one, and get it back to you. I'm not sure if this is same everywhere, but its just a suggestion.
