Default Re: no start urgent

I haven't tried push starting. Huge logistical issues.
If the starter is toast, the push start will just get me running once, right?

Considering the location of the starter, if it is the culprit, I would likely have a shop do it for me. As such, they would use a brand such as Duralast or ACDelco, etc.

I thought starters usually kinda failed with some warning first. And the 2x4 trick works for a while. I gave it several fairly solid taps with a broom handle, should I try more/harder? With those wires in there, it makes me nervous. Visibility of the area is less than ideal.
