Hi AE,

Car Info: 2004 996 GT3 stock

Need to ask you guys a question, especially for those that have issues with their starter motor. Currently I'm having a starter motor issue whereby the car would not start when it's hot. Anyone have experiencing this before? If so, what did u do to rectify it?

Been told that the starter motor needs replacing and it cost about $1500 at an Indy. I would assume doing it at porsche is more expensive.

Normally an indication that the solenoid has packed it in on the starter motor.  An auto elec could probably repair it, otherwise you options are to pull it out find the Bosch (?) part number on it and buy the Bosch branded item from the likes of Repco in Ingrams (SP).  Or buy new from www.sonnenoemporscheparts.com in the use and have either your dealer or indi fit it.

The car will start but it needs to be crank several times to start.

Well it won't be the solenoid then.
