Re: starter motor

you need the 1.6 starter motor. you can take it from any age 1.6 bravo brava or marea. i believe the 1.6 stilo also uses the same starter motor, but i cant guarantee that.

Re: starter motor

if it turns over at the correct speed then it cant be the battery.

plugs and leads can be the problem. if they have not been replaced in line wiht the service schedule then replace them asap.

poor compression is a favorite cause for cold starting problems. its the main cause of cold starting problems on high mileage cars. your 1minute of cranking to start does sound like typical compression loss symptoms.

Re: starter motor

poor compression is difficult and expensive to fix, usually requiring the piston rings to be replaced. lets hope it isnt the cause, but lets find out either way.

Re: starter motor

it is more likely to be a lead problem than a plug problem, but definately replace both. the leads should be replaced every 24k or 2 years.
