Bolt hole is cracked which won't allow the starter to be held in its rightful place
My car has 200000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
Hi - while it may be possible to remove the starter and repair the housing (weld and re-drill the hole), the most practical approach is to simply replace the starter. It could well cost just as much to repair it properly as to replace it. I recommend a starter replacement performed by a mobile, professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, who will come to your location, and make this repair for you.
