Sometimes; if you operated the vehicle for some time with low voltage it could destroy your starter. Low voltage is the worst enemy of a starter motor.

How do you replace the starter motor brushes in a 1997 Toyota Camry v6 conquest xv20 series?

Its not worth replacing the starter motor brushes on any car. By the time the brushes are worn, there is probably other wear and tear to the bearings, the commutator, and the windings. Better to just replace the starter. Same deal with the brushes in an alternator.

What is wrong with a 98 Plymouth breeze when you replace the battery and the alternator and it still doesn't start until you get someone to jump start it?

Find an ammeter to find out what the starter is pulling. If the starter is pulling too much current, you probably need to replace the starter, but don't just go off replacing parts until you test them. Apparantly that plan didn't work to well for you when you replaced the battery and alternator. Always test first!

Where is the alternator fuse on a 2007 Saturn aura?

The 07 Saturn Aura does not have an alternator fuse, and technically it is a generator not an alternator. There is a large gauge wire from the generator to the starter, this is a fuseable link. Check for 12 vdc at the large terminal of the generator, if is missing check the terminal on the starter. If the starter has 12 vdc and the generator does not, the link is bad and must be replaced. DO NOT REPLACE the link with wire, a fuseable link must be used.

How do you tell if the starter or the alternator or both is bad on a 1994 Dodge Spirit?

While it is running disconnect the battery cable, if the engine dies your alternator is bad, the battery must be tested to see if it is bad but if it wont hold a charge then its a pretty good chance. Your local auto parts store can test them both. Starter: If starter wont engage, wont run or anything then it could be a bad starter or bad Starter Solenoid. Alternator: If your battery guage in the car isn't showing that the battery isn't getting a full charge then that is bad and will need replaced... but I wouldn't just replace em on the fly... have them tested before replacing to make sure that you just don't have a bad or corroded wire.

From what I understand, you have to diconnect the exhaust system on the side that the starter motor is located on. To reassemble you have to replace the exhaust gasket with a new one.

Why won't my car start I just had the battery checked and had a new alternator installed It started twice after having the alternator replaced but it will not start now?

If the engine doesn't turn over at all there are a few things that are possible. Start with the battery ground cable and make sure it is making a good ground and is not broken. Also check the positive cable from the battery to make sure you have a good connection and no breaks in the wire. If these are both good you may need to replace the starter motor. There are brushes inside the starter (yes they can be replaced if you know how to take the starter apart) that will grind down to the point of not making enough contact to start your car. Since you said you had the alternator replaced I'm thinking it probably is the starter because any competent mechanic would have checked the battery cables before replacing the alternator.
