My truck has been acting up lately. Occasionally it will try to start, and without even cranking, I'll hear a loud "snap"/"spark" and the truck will act as if the battery is disconnected. I then have to remove the battery cables and put them back on. I figured out the problem wasn't the fuse box so I took a look at my starter (for the first time). I noticed I was able to move it back and forth on the one bolt that was holding it on. The shaft that has the gear on it was soaked in oil/transmission fluid. Could this be shorting out my capacitor?

"capacitor" ? You mean starter solenoid?(or armature maybe) You have some problems to fix I'm thinking. And yes, the starter for one. And the tranny oil leak. ? Thats the front pump/tc seal . Tranny removal time.
