This is getting ridiculous- cold starting issue
To date I've replaced the starter, battery, coil, plugs, wires, cap and rotor. I've installed a dual battery set up and engine block heater too.
This morning it was -20º outside and the block heater had been on for like 3-4 hours and the damned starter still was acting up. I turn the key (feels like turning through molassas) and the starter free spins without turning the fly wheel. A couple of tries later and it's spinning and then clashing teeth, and then a couple tries later it finally starts.
I'll be pulling the new starter on Saturday and having it tested just to be sure, and I'll even test the one that I just took off and put on my son's Jeep. I suspect the starter won't be the issue.
So does ANYONE have any idea's?
