possible starter motor issue

Recommended Posts

sorry, as another issue (starting to add up now!), I think there may be an issue with the starter motor - it is completely fine starting from cold but (intermittently), once fully warm, when you go to start it it is as though the battery is flat (it isn't) - the only way of starting it is jumping it with another car with that car's engine running. It doesn't always do it but often enough for it to be a concern if ever taking it out.

Is this an issue anyone else has come across and do you think it will need a new starter motor or is a fixable fault with the original?

Check the earth strap from the engine to the chassis, and clean the contact areas as needed

 

if that's ok then yes I'd suspect the starter

Thanks for that, I checked and found the battery cable was badly frayed so have replaced that first. As it's an intermittent problem will have to see if solves it or not....
