I would double check all the connections on the starter and check the connection on the battery, as ling as all those are good I would doiuble check to make sure that you used the right amount of shims for the starter. I once forgot to put them in and it wouldn't crank. My 94 cav, needed three. Hope this helps. You need to look very closely at both ends of each battery cables. If they are corroded, dirty,etc, replace them.Make sure you sand down surface they attach/ground to so remove any paint, film, etc. It sure sounds like a connection problem to me. Good luck.

Why dont i get full battery power from new battery the truck shows that the battery is like dead it cranks over really slow n it drains the battery and the cranking gets slower whats wrong?

Most likely the starter is "dragging" due to worn bushings. When the bushings wear, the starter will "drag" against the interior of the housing and barely spin, causing the battery to drain.

Can a battery that fails the storage capacity test keep an engine from starting - even when the engine still cranks?

No. If you have enough power for the engine to crank then it has enough power to run the other systems. ALSO..i've started a car with a good battery and replaced it with "unknown battery" and it has stalled the motor. Starter and everything was good. Technically, even if the battery is dead and all other systems are normal this shouldn't happen. Go figure.

Does a vehicle have an alternator and a starter?

Yes. The alternator is used to keep the battery charged, while using the headlights, radio, a/c, etc. The starter to me is misstated because it actually cranks the engine. The ignition system starts it, and keeps it running.

If a battery cranks well can it still be bad?

If the battery turns the engine over as it should then the battery is good.

Why wont your 2000 GMC Sierra start?

Starter won't crank over engine? Battery or battery connection issues. Starter cranks over engine but engine won't start? Being a GM product I would suspect fuel delivery problems (bad fuel pump).

If car cranks over and won't start it is not the starter, alternator or battery. Most likely the ignition wires or module, fuel delivery system or air intake meter.

Why Engine cranks slowly?

If an engine is cranking slowly the first thing I would suspect is a weak battery. Remove both battery cables and clean both the cable connectors and the battery posts. Put a battery charger on the battery and charge it until if is fully charged. If the problem still persists, then suspect a starter going bad or the engine is slow in time. Remove the starter and have it tested at an auto parts store. If the starter checks OK, then you need to have the engine timing checked. If your Check Engine light is on, have the ECU scanned for a trouble code and go from there.

How come my 2001 Toyota corolla doesn't start on the first try?

Check your battery system. Have your starter checked along with the battery. Batteries are good for about 5 to 7 years for optimal performance. If you live in a cold climate, maybe get a battery with a higher amount of rated cold cranks.
