Ok, so my wifes Mitsubishi Galant has been out of commission for about a month. I checked the timing belt, spark etc. The engine would crank but the car wouldnt start. Saturday I sprayed starter fluid in the throttle while it was cranking and it started right up. I have been fooling with it for the past few weekends and finally decided to take it into a shop the other day. Yesterday the mechanic called me and said there were alot of spiders under the hood and he refused to work on it When I went to tow the car home this morning the mechanic told me it started fine for him and I could drive it home. Sure nuff it did. He told me it was the starter causing my issues. Does this make sense to anyone? I though if the starter was going bad it wouldnt crank. I'm not sure if he just said that because he was too chicken to diagnose it properly. I can do the starter myself, but I dont want to spend $200 on a starter I dont need.
