Question about 2001 Toyota Echo
The only way to know for sure is to have a diagnosis performed by a trusted, certified mechanic. However, there may be tell-tale signs of a starter issue, such as a grinding sound when you go to start the car. I am not a certified mechanic, however, I do have much experience fixing cars, and have replaced a few starters. Depending on where the starter is located on the car, build up could occur on the terminals from the battery, resulting in a loss of electrical conductivity. You have to be careful when tampering with a starter, as doing so should result in an electrical shock. The battery should be disconnected before messing with it. My recommendation, however, would be to find a trusted, local mechanic that can help you determine if the starter needs to be replaced. You can always buy a used/re-manufactured part and have the mechanic install it for you (if they are willing to). Auto shops often get commission off of new parts that they acquire for you. Good luck!
