that will tell me it works on a 2.3 for sure but the part number (even if the part is identical) are usually different through an annotation or extra "-1" for different engines.

I just checked the denso reman part #'s for the 3.0 starter, and the 2.3 starter. the 3.0 is 280-5104. the 2.3 is 280-5108. why not just go to the junkyard and pull one off a 3.0, that way you aren't taking a gamble.

because instead of charging me 15 like CL theyll do 80 lol and its an "electronic part" so once i take it, its mine, no returns. so ill gamble 15 over 80 anyday
