2000 Acura RL Starter
HI. I am having a problem with my starter on a 2000 Acura RL. Never had to deal with starter problems on any of my other cars so this is the first. Sometimes the car will not start and I know for a fact that it isn't the security system preventing it. When it doesn't start it makes one single loud click and if I keep trying it'll eventually start. It's been happening more and more recently and I've already put a brand new battery in the car I had sitting around and made sure it was fully charged before putting it in + I cleaned up the battery terminals. I do have free towing through my insurance company if it doesn't start completely but I just want to confirm it's the starter before I go ahead and replace it because the quotes I'm getting are 550-750 not including taxes. Does this problem sound like the starter contacts being worn out? I know Acura is Honda but I've had Hondas with 200k-300k on them with the original starter and never had any problems.
