Starter drags when motor is hot. Just like a weak battery. I have checked battery at Auto Zone and battery is fine. Could it be a bad starter. This is for a 1986 Bronco II.

When you say you're having a hard time starting it does that mean it cranks over fine but it just takes a while to start or does that mean the starter is dragging when you try to start it

The engine has a hard time turning over when the engine is cold but if i drive it around the block and turn it off and start it back up 5 times in a row it has no problem when the engine is warmed up. I...


you may have a bad,or going bad starter. when you attempt to start it cold,does it turn over real slow? this can be 2 different issues. either a bad or weak battery,or starter dragging. simple to diagnose. take you car to auto zone or advance auto parts and have them check your battery for free 1st. if it checks good,then go towards a bad starter. the starter can drag,or turn really slow when it's going bad. almost like a drained battery. but after the engines warm,it turns over just fine. narror your search by ruling out a bad battery by having the battery checked for free 1st. then move towards replacing the starter. thank you for choosing fixya.com

Our 1997 Lumina has sporadic starting problems. Sometimes for no apparent reason it won't turn over. The lights come on, but the engine won't turn. Other times it works fine


sounds like either a loose battery or corroded battery terminal. if not that,you're starter may be going bad.sometimes they drag slow when going bad.sometimes they get hot and won't restart the car until they cool down completely.this may be your problem. if you're mechanically inclined,auto zone or advance auto parts will check the starter for free,but you have to remove it from the car in order for them to test it.theres no other way to test it other than remove it from the car. hope i've been helpful and thank you for choosing fixya.com

When i start my van it just clicks and wont start


Start with making sure your battery is good (12 Volts). The other issue that could be is a bad starter and will need to be replaced. The clicking noise you hear is the starter solenoid working to activate the starter, once the starter has gone bad. It will not turn the engine, you might want to try to start the engine with another car boosting the battery. A weak batter will not have enough cracking amp to turn the starter, even though you have 12 volts.

Good luck and you can buy a rebuilt starter at Auto Zone, they will also have the step by step instructions for you to get the job done.

Thank you for using fixya and be safe.

I have a 2003 Lancer. The car does not start. Starter solenoid clicks when turned over. The dash lights are dim. I've had the alternator and battery check and are good. Any direction would be helpful. ...


YOU NEED TO MEASURE THE VOLTAGE WHILE IT IS CLICKING AT THE BATTERY & AT THE STARTER, IF THE VOLTAGE IS BELOW 9 OR THE STARTER IS DRAGGING THE CABLES ARE NEXT. BATTERY CABLES CAN BE TRICKY, THEY MAY LOOK FINE, BUT CAN BE BAD. WIGGLE & PULL ON THE CABLES, THEY COULD BE THE PROBLEM. WHILE CRANKING, CHECK FOR HOT SPOTS AT CABLE CONNECTIONS. HOT SPOTS MEAN BAD STARTER OR POOR CONTINUITY .

Check the start solenoid, starter side, when you turn the key... The battery side will always be hot, the starter side should be hot when you turn the key.

When you start the engine it drags what could it be ? it does this when it gets hot


have the starter and the battery testedm a hot engine takes allot more power to turn over than a cold one, so weak batteries and starter motor problems will rear their ugly heads, Kragen and Autozone will test this for free.
