comment Can a starter fail and then work intermittently?
Thanks for the comment. Because its been starting just fine since the initial problem (4 days now) and after a little more research, I think I'm going to skip the diagnostic unless the problem returns. The mechanic kept referring to looking at the flywheel, which scares me a bit and makes me think he's looking to find some major work.

I did some more reading after posting; it seems the cheapest/easiest thing to try would be to make sure there is no corrosion on the battery to ensure a good connection. I did notice a little bit on the battery clamp when I installed the new battery.
