sluggish when starting the car.

Asked by Nov 23, 2012 at 11:54 AM about the 2003 Pontiac Vibe Base AWD

Question type: General

when starting the car its very sluggish and at times the engine won't even crank at all, one time I knock on the starter with a hammer and the car started. The battery is good and so as the alternator, what do you think might be the problem.
