STARTING PROBLEM

2001 Honda Civic

Noises problem
2001 Honda Civic 4 cyl Automatic 208K miles

Sometimes I have trouble starting my Honda Civil LX - it has 208K and the car is slow to turn over. Lately it's been making a strange cranking sound like it's not wanting to turn over. Every time I have my son in the car so I can crank it so he can see what I'm talking about, it doesn't do it. How can I tell somebody about this intelligiently? Possibly a Stranded Mom.

Hi jgeist,

Get the battery terminals cleaned and retightened and retest.

Have the battery condition tested, Autozone and most parts stores provides the services. While you are at it, get the charging rate tested as well.
