When the truck is warm the starter lags when cranking Everything is new Is the timing just a little off This is a 1977 351M?

the problem with your truck is either the battery does not have enough cranking amps, or the starter is beginning to wear out. first time i ever had this problem i put a higher cranking rated battery in and that solved the problem

Can i use a battery that has more cranking amps than necessary?

Yes. Having more than needed isn't a problem, as long as the battery will fit the car.

Why would a car almost start but will not turn over and do less with each try?

Dead cells in the battery or your starter is going out. Worn out starters tend to consume more "cranking amps" from the battery, making it seem like the battery has a problem.

"Big" Battery Damage Alternator?No, it should not damage the alternator. If this has happened it's probable that the problem is somewhere in the wiring circuit connected to the battery and alternator.

How can you be sure if your starter is bad and not the battery or the alternator?

To test the starter, you need a verified fully charged battery and good connections. Crank the engine and check cranking speed, cranking noise, and cranking current. Compare against the manufacturer's specifications. Unfortunately, this can be a recurring problem, because failure in the starter, battery, or alternator can cause one or both of the other two to fail. Careful attention to detail is necessary. Don't just replace one part, without then verifying that the others are OK.

If you crank your car and it does turn over but won't stay started and the battery light comes on after it dies whats the problem?

The battery light will come on when the engine fails, not part of the problem. Check out the ignition coil ballast resistor (if iftted). Its bypassed when cranking and in circuit when normal running

How does your car sound if you put in a battery after a month?

If your question is what may be a problem with a car that you have to change the battery after a new battery was installed a month ago? Then the alternator may be suspect and or a draw from the electrical system.

Why does F150 starter burn out?

biggest problem with ford starters burning out is caused by a bad battery and prolonged engine turning over if hard to start. if starter has been replaced, your battery may not have correct cranking amps. bare in mind that a hot engine actually takes more cranking amps than a cold engine to start.

What will cause your car not to turn over?

When you say, that it won't "turn over", it is assumed that the engine will not crank when you attempt to engage the starter. If it's cranking but the engine isn't starting the following doesn't apply. If it's not cranking... Usually it's battery, alternator or battery terminals. If that isn't the problem start checking the neutral lockout, the keyswitch or the starter and/or solenoid.

Why would a 95 Mitsubishi Eclipse ignition coil not be getting electricity?

I had a problem with my 98 cranking but without spark. I traced and tested all of the sensors and harnesses until I realized the obvious. The ignition system will not operate unless it sees a minimum of 8 volts while cranking. I hooked up a simple voltmeter and tesed during cranking and had a reading of only 7.65. I confirmed the problem by cleaning the terminals and used a jumperbox. The voltage read an average of 8.75 and it started. I replaced the battery and problem solved.

Why does your 1994 Chrysler New Yorker LHS not start every time it sits for awhile?

Is it a problem of the battery goes dead or does it crank but not catch? If the battery is going dead over time perhaps you need to check the battery and/or alternator. If it's cranking but not starting, check the computer codes.

Starting problem ford areostar in the battery connection or fuses. Turns over but won't fire?

Load test the battery at half of its cold cranking amp capacity. If it dips under 9.6v, replace the battery. If your battery is good, replace the ignition solenoid, it should be on the firewall somewhere near the passenger side.

What would cause an intermittent cranking problem on a 97 S10 4.3 Blazer that is fixed by disconnecting then reconnecting the battery?

Be most suspicious of the battery itself or of the terminals. Battery cables can become corroded inside the coating of the cable and may not be noticable from looking at it this corrison can run all the way to your starter. The cables are a cheap repair that can solve the problem. also your ground wire could be corroded

What is OBDII code P1684?

An error code P1684 from an OBDII code reader indicates that the battery had recently been disconnected. This is normal if a new battery was installed but can indicate a connection issue or grounding problem.

91 dodge stealth having trouble starting it will push start and alternator builds power until headlights work but if you stop the car it wont start again any ideas?

You need a new battery or it has a battery cable connection problem. The battery needs a full charge too - like driving around for an hour to charge it back up. A voltmeter is useful to read battery voltage when cranking. 12.6 volts =full charge. When cranking it may drop to 10 volts. If the starter won't turn over use the voltmeter to check for the 12 volts on the battery and then starter battery cable connection point.

The battery symbol lights up on your dashboard car wont start Battery seems ok Replace alternator?

Do the headlamps work while cranking the starter? If not focus on your battery and cables. Jump start the car and have the system tested before you throw more dollar bills at this problem; it could be the alternator but have it tested first.

How are Cold Cranking Amps affected below the temperature 0 F?

The battery becomes less efficient as the temp drops. The problem is the vehicle requires more power to start the engine as the temp drops. So, if you live in a cold climate, purchase a battery with a higher CCA reading.

My Firebird won't turn over or start what could cause this problem?

Check your battery voltage. It should be reading over 12 volts while cranking. Todays batterys will not even take a jump when they die... Are the battery cables corroded? Check to see if the ground cable is secure to the block

1996 dodge intrepid wont start?

If the 1996 Dodge Intrepid will not start, there might be an issue with the battery or the starter. This could also be a problem with the solenoid or the fuel gauge or fuel pump. The problem and the fix will vary depending on whether the car is completely dead or is cranking when the ignition is turned.
