Question about 1994 Honda Civic
I turne the key the contactor makes clik but the starteu takes 4 ,5 times to startshow i do to remove the starter thank u
Are you sure that the battery is still viable?
What you describe can also be caused by a battery's 'cold starting' amps falling.
Also, before you replace the starter, go over each battery contact; the two posts which may not be contacting well, the point at which the negative ground is attached to the body or engine, and the starter terminal. Any auto parts store will have a battery terminal cleaning brush; these have a male part for the inside of the clamps and a female brush for the battery posts.
If the solenoid (that's what is doing the clicking) is separate from the starter, use a wire brush to clean any terminals in the path from + terminal of the battery to the starter.
Starters draw ~ 120 to 200 amps when starting and any corrosion or loose terminals can cause the effect you have.
Removing the starter is not difficult; they are held only by 2 or 3 bolts to the bell housing of the transmission. BUT; before you deal with anything electrical on a car, disconnect the negative battery terminal first - always. If a tool slips while removing the negative/ground post clamp, hitting some other part grounded to the chassis - no fire. If you remove the + terminal first, slipping can blow the tool away and severely damage the post.
Starters do fail but it is often the result of an oil leak that has worked its way into the starter and contaminated the commutator so the brushes no longer fully contact.
