    Just had to call the AA as my car wouldn't start when finishing work. The guy told me the starter motor had gone. He gave me a jump start, but said once I turn the engine off, it won't start up again.

    The last few months, my car has been choking longer than usual when starting it up in the morning. Wish I got round to getting it sorted earlier.

    Any idea how much this will set me back? (2004 A3 TDi 2.0 Sport)

    Okay, thanks.

    I've just been to a garage, and he said he can supply and fit a refurbished one for £80. I may do that instead.

    You can normally get a refurbed one on an exchange basis, anything between £60-£100.

    I'm sorry, this does not compute.

    If your starter motor is dead, a jump start won't work.

    -Did you mean a PUSH-start?

    If a jump start works, the problem lies elsewhere in your electrical system.

    Thanks everyone. I'll PM him.

    Yeah, I meant push-start, sorry. I'm going to have to do the same tomorrow to get the car off the driveway.

    Refurbished motor and fitting for £80 sounds good to me.

    Saves you having to buy one for £60 odd and crawling about in the cold trying to find where it is before you fit the new one.

    Snap his hand off !!!
