Kia Troubleshooting Questions? Ask a Mechanic
Are you saying the engine is cranking slowly prior to starting?
We need to define terms here.
Crank= this is what happens when you first turn the key.
Turns over= this is the same as crank
Start= we both know
I need to know which is happening so I know we are both on the same page. Mud to me would seem like engine drag when trying to crank the engine. Is this the case?
It sounds like the issue is the battery, however it may be the connection on the battery and not the battery itself. Most of the larger parts stores, like Autozone can and will test your battery for you at no charge. So, I would start by checking the connections at the battery for corrosion, if they look good, then have that battery tested. Most will even put a new one in for you if you purchase it there.
