My car is starting slower and slower each time and I fear Im going to get stranded sometime soon. When the car was running mikes techtom said 14.3v and the battery is just over a year old so I dont think it would be that.

Starter going out on me?

Yup, probably your starter. Mine did the same thing. I had about 2 days before it went once it started to get really slow.

Best one to get? OEM or advance autoparts?

Check your starter wires, connections. If there's corrosion, that causes resistance (slow starter speed). But most likely the solenoid is causing the problem. Buy a starter, reman or OEM. They all break down, they all squeal, one is not better than the other (Mitsu vs. Hitachi). I've had them all, Nissan just engineered the starter in a bad location.

ah the b13's starter is'nt bad at all to change, the b14s are a pain with the lowport intake manifold bracket.

get a used starter from dre or jgy. under 60 for a starter taken off a JDM engine.

When my starter died last year i had to walk home, my dad borught me to my car and showed me a trick. If you take a rod and tap the starter a few times while turning the key(TAKES TWO PEOPLE) it will work, but this can only be done 2-3 times b4 all is lost with your starter

Changing the starter Blair is dirt easy especially if you can get two people doing it. One on top and one on the bottom of the car.

the starter isnt all that hard to get too...just reach up there from underneath. although I have never taken it fully out of the car, I have moved it out of the way for a tranny swap.

How the hell do you get to the bolts for the starter? I've removed all the intake stuff up to the throttle body on my NX and still can't figure out where the damn bolts are.

look for the round lump right under the TB. the two bolts to each side of it are the ones you need to loosen.

Take it apart and fix it yourself like I did. Like $20 to do it by buying the brush plate. Mine did the EXACT same thing yours did back in September. It is soooooo easy to open and fix. If you can stick a pencil in a sharpner you can do this.

Give me your VIN number and I can tell you the exact Nissan part number to order. While your in there clean it up and buy some Moly fortified grease to lube it up like new. It will be a 1000% times better than any Autocrap or Advance Crap Parts any day.

This is the first starter of all the cars I have owned all my life to try to fix on my own. I will NEVER EVER buy another one again, so long as it is servicable and I can get parts for whatever brand it is.

If you have any questions I'll be glad to help.
