    Ok, so my friend's prelude does not start. We jumped it, and no go. The battery seemed fine through anyway. So, I took the starter out, and as one mechanic told me, hit it with a hammer just right, to release the spring. Before this, when we turned the key on, the starter did not engage. now, it engages the flywheel, but I think it does not spin hard enough or something. When u turn the key, there is a "click" noise, and nothing! Umm, so you think it's the starter? I checked a lot of fuses, and they were fine, but could I have missed some?

    The car is a 99 prelude with the H22 motor.

    Try jumping it now. Also, a bad starter would do that too.
