Question about 2004 Ford Mustang
When I try to start it up I just keep getting the "rrr-rrr-rrr" without the engine turning over. After trying it a few times the "rrr-rrr-rrr" keeps getting weaker. Could this be a sign of a bad starter? I checked the battery voltage and everything is fine. Also, I am beginning to notice that my gauges are going crazy. The hands keep bouncing back and forth when I try to start the car.
I would have the battery tested for a weak cell and if the battery is good have the alternator checked but before all this check the condition of the drive belt

If the engine cranks ("rrr-rrr-rrr") when you turn the key, then the problem isn't the starter or the battery.Plan to have at least one person sitting in the driver's seat and one or two persons pushing.Turn off all accessories (radio, wipers, lamps).Turn the key to the "on" position.Depress the clutch pedal with your foot.Put the transmission in first or second gear.Release the hand brake and the foot brake.Note that the people pushing need to get the car rolling as fast as they can. This works best down a hill or an incline.Release the clutch pedal while giving the engine a little gas with the gas pedal once the car is moving about as fast as you can run. The engine should start
