I just noticed yesterday that when I start my car, the start clicks once before turning over.
Is that a sign that my starter is going out?
I have an 05, so I know it will start showing it's age sooner or later.

Could be the bendix... Take a screw driver and cross the + and - screws to jump it.... NO, wait they are sealed, that was OLD school.... Thats what we did back in the day..... plus make like an indian give it a rapaho with a hammer.:willy:

Times were simpler then........ Sounds like a bendix clicking if you have a manual you can push and pop the clutch to start it.

IDEA.. Locally we have an alternator and starter place that will rewind the starters for a lot cheaper then buying a new one plus you'll have the original casing and internal workings. YA DON'T wanna go to AutoZone and get a cheapie re-manufactured one. Guaranteed for life my a$$.

Check in your area and see if there is a place that does this.
