Question about 2002 Ford Escort
I have two friends that have a 2002 escort. Will start in the garage and run. when they take it to work (this is winter) it has to be jumped. I took a charger and it had 13.0 volts when I checked it. They were using 10w30 oil I changed it to the 5w10 that it had on the fill cap. They called me and said that it is still suffering the same problem!! can you give me a hint on what can be the problem?
I would first have the battery tested, it may have enough power to start the car in a warm garage but not enough outside when it is cold. It is not the volts that start the car, it is the cold cranking amps, testing will tell you how much the battery has left.
