i believe the starter is jammed , tried to start on a clod morning and she cranked a little then stopped , since then i just get a thunk when i turn the key, think its is from the starter

motor could be locked up, possible.

i work at willow grove pepboys and would be glad to check it for you.

it ran great the day before then just did a little crank and died, thought it need a jump , but nothing

wonder, what would lock up motor ?
hard to say without seeing it, and remember, we are guessing here. a look is required to determine the failure
