Q: Q: Do I have to replace my starter?

asked by on

My car didn't want to start so I would crank it over and over again but nothing happened, I would take my key out wait a minute or 2 and then tried turning it on and it did. But 2 days ago my car was just not turning on properly. Everytime I would turn the key to start it it would click and click and the car wouldn't start. It was jump started and then took it to a mechanic he checked the battery and said the battery was perfectly fine and the that car sound fine...but he also thought it could be the starter. Today I woke up to go to work but the car didn't start at all. When I try turning it on it makes a really silent click but doesn't want to turn on. Do I need to get my starter fixed or what could be the problem?

My car has 153670 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
