sometimes after replacing the battery you have to adjust the Johnson rod i have the same vehicle when i replaced the battery i just pulled the rod a little and since i have had no problems

Is there another name for a Johnson rod as my car is doing the same thing. My dad has looked at it he has been a mechanic for 40 years and has never heared of a Johnson rod. The problem is driving him mad as he can't fix it for us.
