FINDING THE PROBLEM on 1995 Toyota Avalon

IS IT WORTH IT TO PUT MY CAR ON A DIAGNOSTIC TESTER TO FIND OUT IF MY STARTER IS SHOT

Asked by for the 1995 Toyota Avalon
I'm not sure what you mean by "Diagnostic Tester". It is worth it to have a mechanic perform a diagnostic test of the charging and starting system if the vehicle is having a hard time starting. There are many things that can seem like a bad starter, so it's important to diagnose the problem to determine the cause, otherwise you may replace a part that doesn't need to be replaced.

you dont need to check diagnostics for a starter, most battery checkers can perform that task, if the battery is ok & the car cranks slow check the voltage at the battery while cranking, you may also just have a bad connection or cable
take it to advance auto part store and get a free diagnostic
