Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I'm afraid to replace the starter just
to find out something else is causing
these parts to go out, i've never seen
all three parts to go out one after the
other within two days. The first
battery was fairly new what can I
check to be sure replacing the starter
will fix my problem and not just
cover up the real problem.
