95 monte carlo LS, 3.1L does not start despite new parts

I have replaced both the battery and starter, yet when I try to start it, it sounds like there isn't enough juice, it drags. both the starter and battery were in need of replacement, what else could be going on?

    Everything looked good. Yes, battery is recommended CCA. Initially the ignition had been left in the on position, this is what started the whole process. Did not show any signs before this.

    It does eventually start & run, or not?

    Have you double checked cables going to starter & ground at battery for good connections & cable still thick & in good shape? Did you replace battery with one of recommended CCA ? (cold cranking amps)

With new Battery and Starter, and still drags -
Check ALL connections and cables for corrosion. That includes the BATTERY to GROUND connection. Make sure the Cables themseleves are not corroded. Sometimes corrosion builds up inside the cable.

My 95 monte carlo stars and runs well fo 5 minutes then dies and wont start for over an hour. When it is in dead mode the headlights, buzzer, dash panel, starter are all dead.

sounds like you could have a loose negative battery wire. I am assuming that this has happened repeatedly. Otherwise, it could be a bad alternator, and it is draining your battery, then it recovers slightly, but after one or two times the battery will be dead, if this repeats too often you will have to replace the battery also.

The Starter silenoid is probably what the problem is. And the knocking could that be a loose starter? The two problems doesn't seem connected.
