Take out the starter take take off the back lid and you will see the two clips inside that rub against the motor kind of like motor brushes. if they are worn replace them and you will have a new starter. you will hear a clicking noise when they are bad and you will not get your starter to start. Toyota starters do not go bad(quality product).

Starter is bad on a 2000 Chevy cavalier how can i tell if my starter is bad on my car what can i do to find out please help?

Make sure battery and charging system are working. Are battery contacts clean and on firmly? Is battery holding a charge, not going dead after a few days of no activity? Is the alternator delivering 13 or 14 volts? Are wires to starter clean and on firmly? If yes to all, suspect starter. A starter can fail different ways: With worn internal contacts it will click but not turn over. With stuck solenoid drive, may whirr but not engage. With faulty solenoid may do nothing. Remove starter and bring to auto parts store for testing
