Do you rebuild the old one or purchase a new one

No they will offer you a rebuilt replacement or a new replacement. Rebuilts are cheaper price. I have replaced a few starters and never had a problem with a rebuilt. Not all cars are the same either. Some have a solenoid mounted up under the hood somewhere separate from the motor and some are solenoid and motor mounted together.

Did I get you right, the motor starts and runs for a little bit and then dies, no problem starting it ? If so it could be the chip in your ignition key. If you have another key try that one.
