Hi guys, this is probably a long shot but I'll give it a shot.

I posted last night that my car wouldn't start so that's the advice I'm looking for.

First things first, it's a Fiat Punto and, everytime I turn the ignition key, the engine just cranks continuously and makes the noise a car makes when it's cranking :(. I have opened the bonnet and had a look at the engine but can't find any problems plus I've tried getting a jump start but that also failed :(.

It sounds like you need to get a mechanic out to it. Don't keep trying to start it or poke around at the engine, you could do more damage and turn a minor job into a major one.

I'd get a mechanic out - it's a bit like lameness in a horse, it could be 100 different reasons behind it!
