Back Again With another Problem I THINK?

Hy Guys I have a wierd one for you. I got into the truck this morning to start it , hit the key and the glow plugs heated up like normal but when I tried tostart the motor it turned over very very slow almost not turning over at all. I turned the key off and tried again and same thing so I thought dead battery but I decided to try one more time and to my supprise it fired right up like nothing was ever wrong. The batteries are only about a year old and the conections look fine from what I can see but plan on cleaning them after work. Any ideas about this one or is this a bigger problem than I am thinking.

Starter dragging would be my guess. it starts out intermittent like that sometimes, then nothing. Your gonna want to fix it before this happens!

A place like auto zone or advanced auto can check it. You just have to take it off for that. Pretty easy. The top bolt is a little tricky to get to, not to bad though. Think mine was bout 215, like you said not cheap. One way to do a quick self test, next time it acts up, go reach under the fender well and tap it with something, wrench or something like that, just don't hit the battery contacts or you'll get a nice spark show. Try to crank again, it may turn over better this time. This seems to work until they go completely.

Sorry Powerstrokecrzy it took so long to get back with an update. I cleaned the battery connections which I might add did look a little dirty and put it back together just to make sure that was not the problem before I bought a new starter . I think I might have fixed the problem only time will tell , but I will tell you that it realy spins a whole lot faster now, so that is a start. Thanks everyone for the help!!

Thats great news glad that worked for you. You might also want to check your power cable harness I had to replace mine when I did my starter.
