Is the problem that the engine turns over slowly?
Please let me know...Thanks, Josh
The most common cause of a slow cranking engine (besides the battery) is a starter that is drawing to much current.
Battery cables that are in poor condition can also cause this condition but I highly doubt that you have that type of problem.
It is very common for the starter amperage draw to change depending on tempature. Often the hotter the starter is, the slower it cranks.
What you can do is have a starter draw test performed. This will tell you if the draw is excessive.
I'd recommend having the starter tested when the slow crank situation occurs the most. If it happens more hot, have it tested hot. If it happens more cold, drop your car off at your shop the night before so that it can be tested cold.
The test is simple. It only takes about 10-15 minutes..
Please ask me any questions that you may have....Thanks, Josh
