Are you saying the starter cranks over slow?

The engine still does not fire up correct?

Are you looking for some possible causes?

Cranks slow and don't start need it to run and don't want to spend a lot of money so I was just seeking advice I have already put a new starter, battery and cables what else could it be?
Buick Mechanic: Amedee, Buick Mechanic replied 8 months ago

If the starter and battery are in fact good (no faulty new parts) and the engine grounds are good, it could be the engine itself or one of the pullies starting to lock up causing high resistance causing the engine to crank slow.

You are going to need to check for power down at the starter with while an assistant cranks the engine to ensure there is no power loss issue along the way to the starter.
