Why your have to keep tapping the starter is, because your solenord as gone faulty.
get it repaired and you will be fine.

With the hose, if the car runs ok, forget it.

SE V6 will not start. Battery is OK. When

hi it does sound like the starter is stuck, there could be a way to free it and find out for sure if it is u/s, what you have to do is, locate starter on your vehicle, depending on its location you can try tapping it with a small hammer or a long bar of sorts, at the same time get someone to turn the ignition at the same time while you are tapping the starter, this should free the solenoid and then the starter should work, if it does, turn the motor off, and try again and see if it works if it does your ok, if not then try the above again, if you have to do it every time you turn the motor off then you will need to replace your starter NOTE!!!!make sure you are not near any moving parts when you do this....hope this helps please vote thanks
