As it turned out the starter was not necessary but still I chose to leave it installed. The vehicle is nearly 20 years old with only 39,800. The battery was only 2 years old but the vehicle had sat for a long time, even though the battery had a "float charger" connected.
The problem was in fact the REPORT OF THE BATTERY, VOLTAGE REGULATOR AND ALTERNATER WERE ALL OK, FROM ADVANCED AUTO PARTS COMPUTER ANALYSIS RESULTS!! That left the starter being recommended by them! When the vehicle would not start in the garage, "My Mechanic" was called. Wayne reviewed the computer print out results as well as saw a battery charger/starter system connected that still was unable to start vehicle. The vehicle was pushed out of garage into the driveway where Wayne removed and replaced the original starter. When trying to start, it did the same as before the new starter was installed! Wayne jumped started the vehicle with his vehicle and it started perfectly! Wayne offered to remove the new starter and replace the old one (for just the labor cost of $70) but realizing that starter was nearly 20 years old I chose to leave it installed. I went to BATTERIES + store, where they checked the battery that A.A.Parts just checked and they stated it has only 225 AMPS of cranking current power instead of the 550 AMPS the battery should have. New battery was installed by them, NO FURTHER PROBLEMS!! Buyer beware of what Advanced Auto Parts tells you, even with their computer equipment!!!!!!!!!!!!!
