Starting problem (not cold related I dont think)
It was 10 deg out this morning when I tried to start the truck. I have new GPR, Starter, Batteries, and GP's. Its been starting fine when cold.
However this morning it would not and drained batteries after about 5 attempts at 30 sec intervals.
I decided for some reason to check engine oil. It was barely on stick! After adding 4 quarts it was up to acceptable spot on stick. During this time the batteries have been charging with charger.
After 5 hours on charger I decide to try it..... Starts right up.
Could low oil have caused the starting problem? Or any other suggestions?
