    Default 3.2 V6 Clicking on ignition turn.

    Hi Guys,

    I sometimes get a loud clicking when I try to start the car, it will start first time, but after I run for about 3 miles if I park anywhere I then get this clicking.


    The battery is new, I have been told that it could be the starter motor. It depends on where the starter motor position is when I last started it sits.( if that makes sense). Noise is coming from the back of the engine, toward the floor.


    Hope you can advise me.


    Cheers

    Yes that's correct, when it clicks, it fails to start. Don't get the the clicking on starting the engine first thing.

    thank you.

    depends first if you want gm starter or aftermarket, new or used or reconded, then should be able to give a rough estimate.

    Oh see what you mean, it'll probably be from parts supplier, so the cheaper of the two.

    this could be the one, please check before you buy it though, should be a hours labour at £35 to £50, there is no starter listed for your car in the vauxhall trade club.
