sometimes the most complex problems have the easiast solutions.
this morning the car struggled to start and when i returned later to start it ,nothingexcept a few clicks.
after alot of looking around and scratching heads i decided to check the battery terminals and low and behold the + was loose so tightened that and off she went.
mind you though while underneath the car looking for the starter motor ,i noticed a bad oil leak,will degrease it tomorrow to make sure as i didnt tighten the oil filter enough once
cheers for the replies
