My wife's minivan has been having trouble starting lately. The problem started out as a "click" when she turned the key. On the second try, the car would start. It was an intermitent (SP?) Problem. This morning it wouldn't start at all. I gave the starter a couple gentle taps with a hammer and it started. I believe that the problem is a "dead spot" on the starter.
I tried it again a few times and it seems to start OK. I'd hate to spend a hundred plus bucks to replace the starter only to find out it was another problem.
have the same problem?
