What are the signs of a bad starter?
I am trying to figure out was is causing this b.a. sounding lope when i first start the truck. If i let the truck sit for a day or two then start it is has a hard lope to it. One day after sitting for 3 days it loped 3 times and died, then started again and loped 2 times then died, then i started it again and gave it gas loped right at the start but sounded great and run normal after that.
What does this sound like to you guys?
Here's the problems. I just had a bad fuel line. It had a hair line crack in it. It is the 1st/front fuel line off the fuel bowl on the passenger side that runs to the back of the head. Got a replacement line for around $50 bucks and now no longer leaks. This was after i got the fuel bowl valve drain replacement which wasn't the problem but nice to have a new one anyways.
Still have the lope thing happen.
My next step will be to use sea foam and put a new fuel filter in. Wonder if this has something to do with starter which sometimes doesn't always start the fastest.
Also there is no smoke when any of this happens not black or white. Guess that is a good sign.
Let me know what you guys think also run great after it runs.
