Sometimes when I go to start my car, it kind of hesitates to start. I went and got my battery changed today since it was really almost out of juice, 85 CCA out of 500 CCA.

Changed that and there seemed like there was really no difference, what else could it be and where could I go to get it fixed. Prices? :]

thanks, megan

Your best course of action is to test the starter. Most autoparts stores can do a "draw" test for free. This measures the amount of amps the starter is drawing.
If high, then check connections to the starter, if OK then replace.

It is also possible the ign. Switch is bad.

Also have the alternator tested whenever you change the battery.
