Hi all, hope someone can help. I was unsure where to post this as I'm new to this. I've got a 2001 plate crv. I went out this morning to start car to go to work. I put key in, turned it over, and all there was, was a sort of whirring noise. There was a strong smell of petrol. It's not the battery. It sounds as if it wants to start, and almost catches, but just starts whirring again. I know nothing about cars, so I can't be more informative. Thanks for any help or ideas.
