Car is a manual with 240000kms on the clock.

Car is hesitant to start sometimes. I think these videos will be helpful for someone to diagnose the problem. Is it a failing starter? or something else?



Few days ago it didn't start at all (https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ismyNAuNYU-G7d8STRYzN4BnHIUcCGnz/view) but then when tried again in the afternoon it started back again (although still bit hesitant).


I'm answering my own question to hep someone come across this thread in future, it was the starter motor.

    Glad you solved it. In my experience, if the starter motor is beginning to die, it will sound like it is working slower for a few days leading up to when it completely dies. – sam Nov 20 '19 at 23:24
