On occasion .1 out of 50 tries when you force key as hard as you can it might momentarily engage starter

Replaced starter but still same sound when starting

The solenoid is operational and something in the injector pump is not allowing it to function properly. I am wondering what I can do to repair the problem. I have tried cleaning and lubing the shaft and it worked for a while but acts up after a while.

History; engine light "on", alternator was not charging, replaced. Still not charging, battery checked out o.k.; voltage regulator inside computer possibly b.o. Replaced computer, now engine turns over but doesn't start; does computer need to be relearned and how?

Can I mix Regular 134a with 134a synthetic ?

Recently, my alternator died. I'm going to replace it, but I can't get the belt that surrounds the alternator loosened. I got the main bolts and nuts off the alternator and the electrical connections. Now I just think I have to pull it out of its housing, but need to loosen belt first. I don't know where or how to loosen belt.
