The car doesn't have a rev counter so I don't know exactly. It sounds like its revving as hard as it would if I'd pushed the accelerator about three quarters of the way down.

I'll call my mate so we can jump start it again and see what happens if I try pulling away.

Unfortunately don't have breakdown cover. I couldn't afford it, but if I can't get the car to the garage myself, I'm probably going to have to pay more to get it towed!

Thanks for your advice
