Where do you hit a failing starter with a hammer to get it to start?
I have an older car and the starter is always failing. I don’t have the money to fix it right now, but I’ve heard that you can get a faulty starter going again by hitting it with a hammer? Where, what, and how hard do I need to hit to get this thing running? Or is that just a myth?

- Tap the solenoid with your hammer being careful not to hit it too hard
- As fast as you can, get back to the driver’s seat and start the ignition
