      Aloha,
      Checked the battery with Sears and it is good. Cleaned the terminals on battery , starter, and thing on fenderwell. Still no luck starting.

      Mahalo,

      The cables might have corrosion inside them, and they look good on the outside, but won't pass enough current to start your truck. Have you tried jump-starting it?

      It looks like a valve stem it sits on your fuel rail real close to the fuel pressure regulator.Use a rag and push the little nozzle in to see if you are getting fuel,just make sure you cover it with a rag so you dont get gas on you:(

      When you turn the key to ON, wait a second or two. You should hear a whine from the back which is your fuel pump priming. If you don't hear the whine, then you have either a bad fuel pump relay connection, bad relay itself, or a bad fuel pump.

      Since all you are getting is a click when you turn the key to start, I'm guessing it's electrical. As mentioned above, the wires themselves could be bad, otherwise I'd say it's the starter.

      Aloha,
      I checked the valve and I DO have gas coming out of it. I DO have a whine when I turn the key on from the gas tank.
      How do I test the starter solenoid? Starter? without pulling out the starter?

      This is kind of strange. I have a 92EB with intermittent starting problems, that sounds very similar to this problem. It started a couple of weeks ago. I went to start the truck, and I had power as usual... I heard the fuel pump, turned the key... then click. Great! Made my day! I left the key on and proceeded under the hood. I moved the battery cables, then I heard the solenoid click. Then it started. It happened again yesterday, but I forgot to leave the ignition on. I remembered that, turned the key back on... I did not even get back to the front of the truck and I heard the solenoid click. Turned the key, and it started. I have not figured out what it is yet, I think it is the solenoid.

      Any Ideas?

      Aloha,
      Checked the solenoid with a check light on both terminals and they had power. Checked if there is power going to the starter and there is. Used the "backyard mechanic technique" and hit the starter with a hammer and quess what...it started. Turned it off and tried to start it...click! hammer time again...vroom. I was hoping for a cheaper fix though. I will test the starter first before buying,of course. Mahalo for all the help and ideas. You guys " No ka oi" =are the best. That was hawaiian for yall out there.

      try having someone turn the key and tap the starter and selonoid with a hammer. and see if any noise such as grinding or such comes out.... the brushes could be stuck... or not engaging.... if no noise is comming out and it doesnt start feel the selonoid if its hot.... then its the starter.

      Aloha,
      The cheapest on the island was $140 plus $35 core charge. Lifetime warranty is nice. Starts like a champ every time.
