1994 Dodge Caravan 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 150000 miles
I suspected the starter had been going out for a while. Ex occasionally would remove the keys from the ignition while I was still in gear/moving. In the last couple weeks it has been harder to start, takes several tries. One time a jump got it going. This time, it did not, but I suspect the person didn't have it hooked up right. I was told to "bump" the starter. A friendly stranger supposedly did this, with no change. It seems to be getting juice, as the interior lights and noise work, and the batter is only about a year old. When I try to start, there is no turning over, only a slight ticking or humming noise. The stranger told me it was just the starter, not the solenoid, whatever that means. If this is the case, about how much should I expect to pay for a new starter, and how much should I pay (an acquaintance) to replace it? Wish I could donate at this time. Thank you!
have the same problem?
