Q: Q: My car will not start.

asked by on

While driving on the highway, my car acceleration started to decrease the speed and when I pressed on the gas it would make a clicking noise. I pulled my car over and stopped the whole car. Once I decided to start my car again it felt like it was going to start but it would never turn over. I thought I needed gas but that wasn't the problem. I got my battery and alternator checked at a local parts store and they both passed. Once I got my car towed home I tried to start it again and it was making the same noise when I would pressed on the gas. The sounds weee coming from the starter. Does this mean my problem is with my starter?

My car has 183 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
