98 Mustang V6 Starter Problem

My starters been slowly dying for a while now but would always start after a couple of seconds. Now I try to start it up, it won't rev up at all, it just clicks. I had a 98 saturn before and I could just stick a wrench to it and it would start right up, but I can't reach my starter to do that on the Mustang. Anyone know any cheap ways to fix this problem temporarily until i can afford to fix it?

Re: 98 Mustang V6 Starter Problem

if it is a stick, push starting it is free, just a pain in the ***. Looks like you just need to suck it up and buy a new starter, check rockauto.com. I do a LOT of business with them and couldn't be happier, not to mention some killer deals.

Re: 98 Mustang V6 Starter Problem

sounds like the battery to me if its slowly been dying, losing cranking power over time, and now it just clicks. definately sounds like battery to me. go to your local auto parts store or i know valvoline instant oil change will check cold cranking amps of the battery for free and let you know how it is.

the alternator could be going bad too...the voltage regulator fried on mine draining the batt even when the car was off!..i disconnected the voltage regulator while it was running and because it fuel injected it quickly drained the battery and the car would die...
Just another opinion!...
