89 Buick LeSabre,V-6,3800,I have a new battery,new alternator,almost every morning when I go to sart my car,the starter drags & then crank the car up.What is wrong with that picture & how can I solve that problem.
Expert:  JHoop replied 7 years ago.
If the starter drags when the battery is fully charged, the battery cables have been cleaned from hard deposits, and all connections are tight, then the starter should be replaced. If you have any more questions or need any diagrams, please dont hesisitate to ask...Thanks again, JHoop
