    Should I replace other parts when changing the starter on 99 Deville?

    Well it looks like it is time to replace the starter on the 99 Deville. The battery is good. In the last two weeks, on two occasions, when I turned the key to start the car, it clicked and did nothing. After about ten tries, it started. Other times it started perfectly. Would you suggest to replace anything else with the starter? How about the knock sensor? Will use new gaskets. Thanks.

    The only other things I'd replace as preventive maintenance are the intake gaskets and plenum duct.

    It's a '99. It doesn't have a plenum duct.

    Knock sensors do not have a history of going bad on the N*.

    ...Yeah, I was just testing you guys out... Seeing if you were paying attention.

    I completely missed the year.
