The starter is bad, it slips most of the time. Sometimes on the first try, or after several tries, it catches, and I can crank it. Tommorrow morning, i'm putting a new drive in it as well as spend a few hours looking things over at work.
Thats not the issue though. The issue is, when the starter works, the engine fires over, but dies instantly sometimes. Meaning, it will crank, fire up, the tach will only jump to 1000-1100 rpm and then nosedive to 0.
Tonight, I did an oil change on it. Put a Wix filter on, and poured the crank full of Mobil one 10w30. I then tried to start it. It kept dying. Took several mins to get it to start, and i left it running. Once running, the car runs real good. Doesn't miss, has plenty of power on tap, and idles smooth. Its a 3800, and it sure runs like one!
Anyways, I can probably figure it out, but just be nice to have a little help when i go in tommorrow and try to diagnose this problem.
Anyways, lovin the car, but it needs tlc. Sounds like a good on-going project for me!!
