Subject:      HELP!! Dead starter? Or selonoid? Or?
Content-type: text/plain; charset="US-ASCII"

Hey Listies:

Upon trying to start the van this morning: nothing. The usual two fuel pump noises, then a humming noise very similar whenever I hold the key in the start position. I'll check electrical connections, but otherwise I don't know to know what's broken. Starter? Selonoid? Something else? How can I figure out what died and know what part to buy?

Greatly appreciated!!
