Locate your starter under the intake manifold and gently tap on it with a hammer, tire iron, etc. If the car starter is working more regularly now, you have worn starter brushes. After the tap fix on the starter you typically only expect a few more starts before the starter stops working altogether. A brush set will run any wear from $20 to $50. A rebuilt starter will probably cost about $100. If bad brushes is a good diagnoses, then you should consider buying the rebuilt assembly in hopes that it will never be an issue for you again.

    Take off the cover to the air cleaner and make sure that the filter is not plugged, fouled with oil, squirrels nest, etc. Next replace the spark plugs with a fresh set , it is possible that they are fouled by too much fuel and will not fire any more. In most cases a simple tune up with a new air filter and plugs should solve the problem. If the air filter is in good order just replace the plugs.

Car Shuts Off when A/C is Turned On


i think you have a stuck compressor. check the clutch plate of the compressor. use a wrench to turn the nut at the center of the clutch. see if the plate turns either way. it should..if it does not turn, then it is frozen.

Hard start and choking


I have the same "problem" with my 1990 Galant SS but I didnt think it was a problem. Everybody who knew anything about cars would always advice me to get the engine warmed-up first if it was left with the engine not running for long periods of time. I keep it warmed up for at least 5 minutes or so while waiting for the temp gauge to at least move towards the halway mark. But if its hot then a one click start should be the normal case. Try to get a tune-up on your nearest service center, they dont just replace the spark plugs but also have some sort of kit that helps with the idling and startup issues.
