Possible Starter Issues??
I have a 76 280 sedan that has been running perfect since I bought her..A few minor learning issues but other than that she runs daily...
About a month ago the girl became hard to start only in the mornings or when it's a cold start. She cranks forever until the oil pressure reaches the top level then will trickle into a start... Slowly but surely she will warm up and run great. If I try to drive before she is completely warm, she sputters and sounds as if and sometimes does stall out...
I also experience a "groan type sound sometimes while trying to start. It will only groan once and then goes back to the regular cranking effort..
Today when I went out to start her for the first time today she groaned on the 2nd start attempt then started to immediately decrease in CRANKING POWER as if she was grinding pure battery. I didn't try anymore because it sounded like my battery was about to die out on me...
Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated at this point... Thanks
