Dead start hard start

Just wanted to chime in and remind everyone that winter is near and to check
Your batt terminals for corrosion that will give u false dead battery issues and no starts
It's a good idea to remove and clean up your battery terminals
And check your main starter cable for corrosion that could leave you stranded

Welcome to WCS - NorCal!!!

Good Advice about the battery terminals / Cable ends. That is stuff that is overlooked!
