Hi, I have a 94 holden barina that isnt starting. I noticed that the rotor wasnt turning whilst trying to start. Is this a problem that can only mean something nasty or is there a possible cause that may allow me to hold on to the old girl. Overall it has been running quite well. I hope you can be of some help.
When you try to start it up, does it make any kind of sound? Does the starter make a good click hitting the flywheel?

The starter motor seems to be engaging ok, though it does sound a little different. We couldnt roll start it and the rotor button does not turn when trying to start. Could a starter motor problem cause these problems?

Yes it could be the starter, but first check the battery cables to be sure they are getting a good connection. Disconnect the battery cables and clean them real good with a wire brush. Reconnect and tighten them real good.
