    Hi my starter is acting up it makes a werid sound and not starting right off the bat. Its not a grinding sound but or more a weaking sound. My friend said it sounds like the silnoids going out. Can these be replaced or do i have to buy a another starter?

    It's probably the contacts in the starter. They can be replace and are a lot cheaper than the starter itself.
