Can you explain your problems.

Is this your first time with a problem or many problems.

If its your first time get it fixed or you will get stranded because there is no backup for starting.

Thought I'd jump in and say i was having issues with mine last year and this year I noticed where the starter teeth engage the clutch teeth - the clutch teeth were a little grinded and had some burrs on it. So I took a file and got the burrs off and sprayed WD40 on the starter teeth and into the end of the starter. Works like a charm now. Last year, every so many times the starter would just spin when I turned the key. Hope this helps.
