Is that 3 times turning the key before you here the starter motor connect to the engine and turn the engine over??,,,,,,or........The starter motor connects every time and turns the engine over but it takes 3 tries before the engine starts??


Usually after three times it connects and will not shut off.Now I cannot get it to start at all.

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.
