Q: Is there cut-off switch on my Buick Skylark 1991. on 1991 Buick Skylark

I hit the curb head-on kinda hard, backed up, cut the car off and it would not start. Now, some mechanic is telling me to pay $260.00 for a new starter. Maybe, all I need to do is flip the cut-off switch a friend told me about!

There is not "cut-off" switch for the starter on your 1991 Buick Skylark. There is a chance the starter was damaged when you hit the curb. The starter motor is low in the front of the engine. The price quoted for a replacement starter is not out of line. Please check the repairpal estimator for more information:
