My 6cyl van is having starting problems. We the key is turned, sometimes it just makes the "click" noise and sometimes it starts to turn over, then stops abruptly, or starts to turn over, then acts as if it's not getting enough power like the battery's dead. When whatever needs to make the connection, makes the connection, it starts fine.
Sometimes there's no problem at all. This has been happening for at least 6 months but seems to be getting worse. It always starts, just takes a few times.
So my question is this: because of the varied not-starting symptoms, could this be a problem with the power supply to the starter (like the battery cable), or would the starter going out present like this, for this long? I'm afraid if I take it to a shop, they'll just replace the starter reguardless.
Thank you very much.
p.S. I tried to donate but the page won't let me fill in an amount. Sorry!
have the same problem?
