You may have a defective flywheel ring gear or a defective mechanic If I were you I would find a mechanic who knows how to do more than change parts

Simple. It's just a bad starter if hitting it helps then the starter is done good and dead just replace it

I think these Cruisers have defects! I have seen a lot of them including mine that at about 13000 miles start these electric type stuff! Step up Crysler and stand by your vechicles!I'm disabled and can't afford to keep pouring money in A car that won't stay on the road!!!!
