starter question

will the heat off the motor cause a starter to drag? the reason i ask is that when i drive my 89 F150 it cranks right up. i can drive it 5 miles or so and shut it off and try and crank it 5min later it will drag. i can wait about 20 min. or so and it cranks like a new one. also can it be tested and will the test be the same as driving it? thanks Mike

Re: starter question

Yes, heat from the engine can cause this. Is the heat shield still in place? What kind of test are you wanting done? Amperage draw? Already sounds like you need a new starter.
