will not start
Does the starter click when trying to start or nothing at all ?
I was told to tap it and it worked don't kno for how long tho
It was nothing at all that is way concerns me
If you taped on the starter and it worked, sounds like a problem with the starter. Take it out and have it tested.
Definitely have the starter replaced the brushes in the starter are bad.
