My starter was going bad b4 we experienced -14 degree weather. It holds a charge and my engine rev's up, but it won't turn over. Could it be my spark plugs? A friend suggested it could be the voltage regulator or the battery selinoid switch(?) I'm unemployeed and I don't know much about car's. My apoligies for not being able to contribute a donation, but I could really use your input. Thanx.

Have an assistant try to start your car then smack starter on body while he's trying to start if starter goes on then it's a starter but if it was bad before then it certainly probably failed due to the cold weather. But have your battery charged and tested autparts do it for free

Was this
