Question about 1998 Chevrolet K1500

1 Answer

Slow turn over

I just bought a 98 chevy K-1500 and when I go to start the truck 'warm', the battery is very doggy, but then turns over and starts. When I try to start the truck 'cold', it seems like the battery is much better and that problem is much less existent.. Any thoughts with this problem? Battery..? Alternator?

If the alternator was bad the battery would run down and be dead in a very sort time, this may be a combination of a battery on it's way out and or a starter issue, when starters start to act up they do so more hot than cold, have the battery and charging system tested by any of the chain auto parts stores like Kragen, it is free, if that checks ok replace the starter, also make sure the cables are clean and tight, they also can be an issue.

1999 chevy express 1500 van hard to start when cold. will start up fine with a shot of starting fluid. no engine codes. starts fine when warm


I had same issue. I thought it was a fuel delivery problem but I then noticed that while I had it on a battery charger it started up immediately. I noticed that the speed of the starter/flywheel was significantly quicker leading to the conclusion that the battery just needs to have more cranking amps. When I told this to a mechanic friend of mine he told me that it had something to do with the computer and that I just needed a better battery, more cranking amps. I just bought a battery today might even get a bigger one

Make sure the battery is fully charged. If it starts by jump starting it. Your battery needs to be replaced. If it turns really slow, the starter needs replacement.
