My hilux is getting harder to start every morning. I've checked the batteries and they are fine and there is a good current when the truck is on. I think iylts the starter motor as its not disengaging whe. I start the truck.

JA: What is the make/model/year of your car?
Customer: Toyota Hilux Mk6 56 plate
JA: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Nothing yet but I'm thinking about replacing the starter motor as it sticks on from time to time when I start the truck.
JA: Anything else you want the Mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: I was driving today and I was struggling to accelerate felt the brakes were on even though they weren't.
