Hello,


I have '07 9-3 2.0t 140K miles. This morning I heard/felt only whirring when turning the key to start. It's as if the starter is happy, but it's not engaging the engine for a crank.



Any common problems y'all know abut with these?


Thanks is advance! Kids have camps, car repair fund depleted :-( .

Update

Update. Tried again a few hours later. This time I had more time to pay attention. The engine is cranking, but almost as if the cylinders/pistons/valves are providing very little compression. It's been 4 days since using the car. I suspect low compression, which I believe is a valve problem these cars have at this age/miles.
