    Which brand starter?

    I'm outfitting my middle aged '02 Taurus with a new starter and need some advice on what brand starter to get. I'm tempted to get this reman Motorcraft, the fourth one down in the orange remanufactured section..

    https://www.rockauto.com/en/catalog/...ter+motor,4152

    For $123 that seems reasonable for a OE reman. If not this one I'll probably be going for a reman of another brand so why not go OE?

    The other reman options I'm seeing at the car stores are...
    Napa brand
    Bosch
    Denso
    Driveworks at Advance
    Carquest
    Duralast
    Valucraft
    Ultima
    Bestest

    Should I go with the Motorcraft or one of these? $123 sounds almost too good although I really don't know.

    Re: Which brand starter?

    AC Delco is a well known brand

    Its up to you. Any reman or other should come with a warranty.

    Be aware of any core charges and timeframe for he core. Esp online buys
