You might pull it apart and look at the brushes, could be all it needs. Lots cheaper than a used starter that may be almost worn out too.

Do you mean that the starter motor runs but won't engage the engine to turn it over? Or that the starter motor itself doesn't actually run with jumper cables?

inhave never done that before, but I am really mechanical, where would I get replacement brushes and how do I know if they are bad?
