Question about 1998 Chevrolet K1500
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.
PLEASE RATE THIS SOLUTION.
