    Question Not starting first thing

    This is the storey:
    I have a 1.6 Club on a 54 plate, first thing she won't start but when she has been ran for awhile no trouble at all during the day.
    To date I have changed the plugs and battery which needed doing anyway, has anyone had a similar problem before I go and fork out a fortune with Vxl.
    There are no cracks in the thingy that slips on the plug heads?

    how about tapping the starter motor with a hammer or screw driver, as it might be a stickin solenoid

    yes its that thing that makes your engine start when you turn the key!

    its located at the back of the engine, its cylindical, and if you where to put your hand down the back of the engine from the right hand corner, its pretty easy to get to
