Re: 5ltr EB won't start
Well, after another 2 dozen or so failed attempts at trying to start her up, I called a Mobile Mechanic and advised him that I thought the starter motor was at fault. He rocked around this morning, hopped into the big ford, turned the key, and sure as a mongrel - it started straightaway, and for the next 10 minutes I couldn't get it to - not work.
Mr. Mobile Mechanic earned $45 bucks for no more than 3 seconds work.
So after I stopped swearing at him AND the car, I apologised (to the car), at which point this pimp of a mechanic felt obliged to offer some kind of diagnosis & prognosis for my money, so he tells me that it is likely that the ignition barrel has a contact fault, but, I still may want to suss out the starter motor. So, I've just dropped the car off at my regular autoshop for them to have a looksee.
I really appreciate your guys expedient advice and guidance. I'm new to the forum, and am about to post pics I've my Fairmont, and my brothers XR8 on cardomain.
