About a week ago, my car wouldn't start. When I turned the key and nothing happened.. no sound... anything. The lights worked, the power windows worked. Just to make sure that it wasn't the battery, I walked it over to an Autozone nearby... and the battery checked out. I automatically thought that it was the starter.
The AAA driver told me that the starter was going bad. He wiggled the starter and got the car to start. He told me that the cables inside weren't making contact anymore. He also told me that I wouldn't be able to start the car once I turned it off. Today
I took the starter to two different Autozone store and both stores told me that they starter worked just fine. If you see the pictures, there is quite a bit of oil that has leaked on it.
What do you guys think? Does it sound like the starter is gone?
