Hi Can anyone help? I HAVE A 1988 3.5efi which i have just brought and it has been standing for about a year,the battery was U/S so a new battery has been got,the problem i cannot sort is as follows:- when you go to start the car it dose a clicking sound from the starter motor then slowly and i mean slowly will turn the engine over( as if the battery was not fully charged-which it is!!)and she will fire and start!,it will do the same hot or cold,i have checked the earth leads from batt to car/body /chassis etc and on the starter itself but no differance,if you jump it from another car she will crank what i would say normal then start.it has been suggested the starter is on its way out.any ideas will be greatley received.

Have you tried sustituting the new battery with another? Like from the car you are jump starting with.

Also look at all the connections in the battery and the starter motor circuit very carefully, they can look fine but be broken inside.

Probably a duff new battery though.
