It cranks sometimes, but very weak. I just put a new battery and cables in yesterday, checked the voltage with the motor running, it reads 14v. I also tried to jump it with another car. Didn't seem to make any difference.
ok.since the battery and both cables are new and even with a jump start it didn't make a difference we are down to 2 possibilities 1)the start its self is bad 2) there is excessive resistance causing the starter to be asked to turn over an engine that is binding up.due to either an accessory on the engine( alt.water pump ect..) or the possibility of internal engine problem
remove the drive belt and see how it cranks over.if it still cranks slow double check the connections from the battery to the starter.if those are good replace the starter.if it still does this then something inside the engine is binding up and causing this a possible bearing or cam shaft problem
sure.or just pop it off.we just want to confirm nothing is binding up on the front of the engine.
