Question about 1999 Subaru Forester
Either your starter is going bad, or it is not getting enough power from the battery, in which case, you would want to have the battery checked. Auto-part stores generally do this for free. The terminals on the starter could be corroded or "gunked" up. I've dealt with that, many times before. If you find that they are "gunked" with oil, etc., use some degreaser on the terminals. Make sure, before performing any work on your starter, that your battery is disconnected. Due to the age of your vehicle, if you do need to replace the starter, consider purchasing a used/re-furbished starter and having it installed by a trusted, reputable mechanic. It is possible to do yourself, but those that I have replaced (under the car) were hard to get to and replace with just one person. All the best ~ JD
