My car has a manual transmission.

Hey there. You have a starter relay on the left of the engine compartment that sends power to the starter solenoid when you go to crank it. This is the only part you have not changed. If you would like to have this taken care of, a certified technician from YourMechanic can come to your car’s location to inspect the starting problem and replace the starter relay for you.
