I put the key in to crank it and it just makes the ehhh ehhh ehhh (turning over sound) sound. Like it wants to crank but will not. The lights seem to be bright inside and out. I hooked the battery jumper machine up to it and the ehhh ehhh ehhh (turning over sound) sound sped up like it gave it more power but not enough still to get it to crank. I am not able to check to see if the battery is good or bad because I do not have the correct tool yet to take the battery out so that I can get it to an Auto-part store.
Do you

A video would help us see what going on. Please take one with your phone and upload it here to the site in your reply.

To me it sounds like the battery or starter is having a problem, but if the engine is cranking but it just sounds funny it could be a timing component issue.

Please let us know what happens.

Cheers, Ken
