Maybe. My intermittent starter motor failure healed itself five years ago when I disconnected it, swapped my transmission, and reinstalled the intermittently failing starter. Five years of never fail startup since. Go figure.
See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
