Paul, before you remove the starter check the ground strap behind the
ABS module.  Remove it and clean it, that was my starting problem a few
months back.  Has nothing to do with my current starting  problem
however,  replaced fuel pump, had no effect.  If anyone wants a good
working fuel pump let me know.
