Car won't start

So it has been having trouble turning over the last 5-10 starts...now it won't at all. All dash lights come on, battery is at 85% life...autozone told me to take off the starter to bring it to them for testing....yeah I cannot get those 2 bots off to save my life...suggestions? Should I just get it towed to the mechanic?

Well I hit the starter with a wrench and it turned over barely...So I guess that means I got a back starter...Mechanic said 120-180 for starter, 80-120 for labor.

Re: Car won't start

Did you get your starter fixed and your car working?

When your car wouldn't start, was it even cranking when you turned the key?

For me, my engine cranks but it will not turn over. Sometimes it sounds like it is about to turn over but hen it just goes back to cranking.

I have looked at the fuel pump/pressure, main relay, and ignition system with no luck. My friend says my starter is fine because it is cranking so I have not checked it yet.

Just wondering if I need to start focusing on the starter.

Thanks

It ended up being the starter. It would crank and start, but barely.
