Anyone Experience Problems With Non-denso Starter?

Ed - I apologize I can't answer your question directly, but I do know that Bosch and Lexus aren't a very good fit for many electrical parts. And of all the parts that might need replacement, the starter is the LAST one I would replace with non-OEM. Book time is 8 hours of labor to replace and I wouldn't want to do it twice. Stick with Denso.

I agree, Stay with OEM, Especially with electrical components.

Going to order Denso starter tonight. I called my dealer and he said book time is 5.0 hours. That aint too bad. He also said you have to remove th eintake manifold and that will require two new gaskets but at least it will be fixed!

thanks

That's great Ed, 5 hours is actually pretty fair. Performace Lexus of Cincinnati in 2004 charged for 8 hours labor at $75/hr (pretty good hourly rate!), $278.53 for the starter and 63.54 total for both intake manifold gaskets. $15 for shop supplies -total with tax: $1024.06 - ouch! :wacko:
