I am confident we can resolve your problem together.Please remember I don't know your skill level. I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle. It may take a few back and forth replies to get to a satisfactory resolution.There will probably be some equipment needed for a proper diagnosis.

I am not compensated for my time until you leave a positive rating. Your rating should be based on the service you received.

Can you give some clarification? When it doesnt start can you hear the starter crank the engine? Do you get a click? Or does the starter work and it just doesnt start?
