Will not start
So, I am having problems getting my truck to start. I could do with some advice before I start to throw cash at it.
Here's a summary of what happened. Also I drive it daily.
I started it to go to work and it seemed to misfire slightly at idle, i mean barely noticeable but only happened when I was turning when reversing out of my driveway.
I drove 15 miles to work and she drove perfect.
Idled at work and zero misfires.
Went to the store a couple of mile from my work a few hours later. I parked, turned her off then noticed a better space so I started her back up and moved her.
Bought my groceries then when I got back to the truck it would not start, turned over really lazy like the batteries were low.
I had a friend try to jump start me with a Subaru forester, it wouldnt start but still didnt seem to crank fast enough. I did find a battery terminal loose.
I called roadside recovery and And they had a Ford Fusion :/ and a booster thing. they connected both up and it turned over fast and would sound like it was going to start but it never did start, although it was probably slower than normal. The RPM's at cranking were 500/600.
Any ideas? Would a bad battery prevent it from starting?
I did check for fuel in the bowl and it seems fine.
