I would suspect the battery would be the problem. Most local auto parts stores will test it for free. Usually if its a starter problem you will hear a metal to metal sound but the starter will not crank slow.

1999 nissian frontier quite running mechanic says its distributor again. we spent the 600 or so dollars on a new one approx. 18 months ago whats up? is this a common nissian problem or a common me


Slow cranking will make it hard to start this is not anything to do with the distributor but either a lazy starter motor or a failing battery ,put a drop tester on the battery and see if its ok if so then use a heavy duty induction amp meter on the earth lead and see what the starter motor is drawing ,if more than 180 amps then starter is the problem

1999 Silverado with 139000 miles, turns over very slowly but starts everytime. Battery or starter?? Do not have a meter to check battery


I would suspect the battery more than the starter. But you can check it without a meter. Most auto parts stores will check your battery for free. But if that is to far, how does it start with a battery charger hooked up while starting. If it isn't as slow, then the battery, if it is something else, not necessarily the starter.

1999 chevy silverado 2500.6.0 l.if truck sits all week sometimes it rolls over slow and wont start.sometimes it will start.new battery starter and alternator is good.if truck does roll slow then starts...


2 things come to mind, first check and clean all battery and starter connections. second, maybe you have something draining the battery. next time it rolls slow, put on a battery charger and see what happens. also, even though it is a new battery, it still could have a weak cell.

I replaced the starter on voyager it has 3.3 the battery has been tested and good, however after I installed the starter it has a slow role like the battery is dead, and it wont start. the connections...


If the connections from the battery to the starter solenoid is good, the ground of the battery is good and the ground of the engine is good then the starter must crank well.
If there is slow cranking it is due to a faulty flywheel connection to the starter pinion, a tight engine/ faulty timing setting..... assuming that the battery and starter motor is double checked.

1999 Dodge intrepid tries to turn over but won't/can't. Everything turns on electronically that's supposed to, brand new battery.


clicking sound heard? starts fast then slows down as you crank over engine?ok try this --at the starter there is an electrical connection -- B+red wire and a smaller wire make sure these connections are tight. if ok proceed to next step--if you hear a low clicking sound when you turn the key and when trying to jump start the car still hear a click sound have someone tap on starter while you try to start it --- if car starts the starter solenoid is bad,anything more please write me back, Lee Davidian

Starter


You can get the starter for around a hundred dollars from AutoZone if you turn in the old one to avoid the core charge.  The started is relatively easy to replace and will have 2-4 bolts holding it in.  Then you just have to plug it back in to the wire in the car.  Shouldn't take more than 30-45 minutes.
