Hi there, does it still grind when you try to start it? Or was that before the starter was replaced?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Was ok no grinding after new one fitted

Thank you.
Does the engine crank just fine when it's hard to start? or does it seem like the cranking is slow and weak?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

It stutters so I leave it for abit then its ok its like its not conecting to any thing its hard to describe it won't turn over

Expert:  Jake replied 3 years ago.
Thanks, ***** ***** that it won't crank an then all the sudden cranks fine is a good indication of a weak battery or more commonly a loose or corroded battery terminal, should be an easy repair.
If the engine were to crank for long periods and not start then we would be more concerned with possible cam sensor issues, but that doesn't seem to be an issue here from your explanation.
