Went to replace vacuum line, and couldnt find hard plastic vacuum line.
Apparently doesnt exist in wenatchee, but Auto Zone told me to use some rubber vacuum line. I did. Went home, hooked it up, and tried to start it.
When I run the starter, it starts strong for a few revolutions, then slowly gets weaker and weaker. Charged battery. Same effect.
Got a new battery and it does the same.
Any clues to this one?
UPDATE: Cleaned battery terminals and tried starting with the block heater. No difference.
I did notice that the glow plug lamp/salt shaker did not get nearly as bright as it used to, and it shut off alltogether after about 15 seconds. I don't remember it doing that before.
