If your battery is low on charge or you have to jump it off it may already be engaged and stuck in flywheel try turning motor by hand back and forth listen if you hear it pop out then try to start with good battery if doesnt work replace starter it could be the selinoid switch but you have to pull starter anyway so just replace all of it

SOURCE: starter wont start

If you or a friend are handy with things mechanical...get on line, perhaps ebay motors and look up a solenoid rebuild kit. Remove starter, separate solenoid from starter body. Pay attention to order of disassembly. Install 2 contacts one opposite the other. Plunger goes right in the middle. By simply looking at parts in the bag, it will be obvious what goes where. Installation is reverse of removal. Obviously, remove negative battery terminal before doing anything....PHB

Testimonial: "You got it right. With single digit weather, the battery was dead. After a long jumpstart it started right up. Greatly appreciate it."

It is cutting out and wont run. When i start it it acts like its not getting enough gas.

You need to check the fuel pressure (Will need a tool for checking fuel pressure) Should be at least above 40 psi. Also if you are in a cold winter area there could be sufficient water in the system to freeze in the line and or fuel filter. If not froze up it could a fuel pump failure. You will have to diagnose it step by step.

Starting problem

Hard to say depending on when the last complete tune up has been done. It coud be related to the ongoing maintenance or to a specific problem.
Generally speaking, in preparation to the winter, with a car of this generation I would replace spark plugs, wiring, distributor cap and rotor, air filter, gas filter, oil. I would check and clean battery terminal connections and have the battery check (check under load). Check is the engine temp is ok and replace thermostat if needed. But once again it's by prevention and you will get your money back saving trouble and saving on gas. This is the first thing I'll recommend anyway.
Hope it will help

Car spudders when i put in gear

This is water in your fuel lines. when it was very cold, the water in the lines froze. when it melts, it runs to the injector system and causes these types of things to happen during acceleration. i would pick up some techtron. ths is good stuff. it will remove the water and, clean out the fuel system.

92 chevy beretta froze this winter

You now have a cracked engine block,no amount of sealer will cure this.
Only a new engine will do,
Usually it is futile to even try repair even with the engine removed and dismantled,although many have tried.
Good luck
