Expert:  david craig replied 1 month ago.

what engine?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.

2.4....garage told me its starter

Expert:  david craig replied 1 month ago.

starters on the 2.4's are very prone to failure due to the location near the exhaust. it should have a heat shield around it, but alot of times those fall off and cause the starter to overheat and prematurely fail
