Q: Starting problems even though I recently replaced the battery.

asked by on

Car takes a long time to start. Recently replaced the battery and negative battery terminal.

I would have a technician look at it and pull codes on the computer and diagnose the problem. It could have jumped timing or have a bad crank sensor or it could be a fuel pump problem, either way it will require some knowledge in order to diagnose this issue.
