Truck Turning Over Slowly and taking longer to start

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

My 98 12 valve recently started having issues while starting. Here are the symptoms: 1. The truck seems to be turning over way slower than normal. 2. The truck takes significantly longer to start because of the slow crank. I have ruled out the batteries and all the connections seem to be clean and corrosion free. From what I have looked into I believe it is time to replace my starter but I wanted to get some other feedback. This would be my first time replacing my starter, so and advice in the best one to buy or where to get it, or evn a how to would be greatly appreciated.

I have moved this into the 12v section.  


I would tkae your started out and build it to a place to have it rebuilt.  You will get a better quality starter at a better price than a reman from autozone etc.

Thanks Guys!  @Dieselfuture

Put the new starter in last night.. Ended up buying a new one and glad I did the starter was sheared off and cracked sourounding one of the bolts. New starter works great.

 My only comment would be did you notice anything loose when you took it out? Hopefully you put the bolts back in with some Loctite blue.  The casting should not have cracked unless there was some unusual force or torqued on it from either being loose or possibly the flywheel being loose more likely the starter bolt .
