A dying cell in a battery cause cause a low voltage issue. Other things can as well.

Being that it'* got some age, the battery is likely not new and could be bad.

Default Also ?

well the owner said he replaced the battery twice ?? We shall see i guess

Also i noticed that the oil pan is a aluminum cast pan and the oil filter is behind it, my prk ave has a metal base and the oil filter is to the side ??? Why did this chg on the 3800 from 99 to 2000 ?

Also, should I be concerned at this point re; the uppper intake problems ?? What should i do just drive it for now ?
thank you

Then off to detail and I can p/u tomorrow. They said the only thing they could find with the no start issue was a bad cell in the battery ???
