I'm glad my broken steering damper bracket inspired you to fix yours. Mine is still broken and will probably stay that way.

Could be. The collar on the column cracked when the Firestone "mechanic" tried to shift it out of park.

It started happening again. I shorted the relay to start it and got no studder. I shut it off immediately, waited a minute or so, started it again from the key and got a studder. Shut it off and...

That's interesting. I thought it was the other way around for some reason but you are absolutely right. That would explain why it has trouble starting hot AND it would explain why it has trouble...

Here's where I'm at with this: I replaced the grounds, replaced the starter and fixed the old relay. The wire that made up the coil had melted, so I re-soldered it. It works. Im still getting the...
