car wont start
So yesterday i accidentally left the headlamps on and the battery died. after i got the car jumped it began having issues starting. at first it would let me start it if i was very carful about how far i push the brake but today it just made a whirring noise as if a motor was spinning but not moving anything. at that point i thought my starter was going out so i got ready to tow my car out of the parking lot at work when a co-worker asked if he could try something.
he turned the crank and and it was able to start up. what he told me was that the flywheel(or flexplate i guess since its automatic?) may be missing some teeth so if you turn the crank a little bit it may catch.
i've been looking around for a flywheel replacement but i've heard its a p.i.t.a. to replace. My question is if anyone on here has had the same issue with their mn12? do you have any advice on getting the repair done quickly? at the moment getting to work is a gamble.
