2001 impreza starter problem
I'm having trouble starting my 2001 subaru impreza. When I try to start the car, the car just produces a "clicking" sound. What should I do? Is it the starter? where is the starter on the 2001 impreza?

Without a meter to check it, if you connect your car to another to jump, let it charge for a few minutes, then successfully start it, there's a good chance the battery was low. If you pull the jumper cables at that point and the car quits again a few minutes (or less) later, your alternator has likely quit or is extremely weak. If it runs fine while operating, but then is dead again after you shut the car off, your battery isn't holding charge. Make sure you test either unit prior to replacing so you know you identified the correct culprit. Most auto parts places will do the testing free of charge.
