okay checked them out tightened them up. seemed to be fine all day about 10 start ups. no problem. got out from dinner. no crank. i hear a relay of some sort behind the knee bag clicking. what is it? or is there some other problem. we push start it and get home and it is starting just fine now. :confused:

I had a battery that tested fine but ended up being so full of that white buildup inside it didnt have enough juice to actually start the car. (even though the meter said it did)
(near exact same issues, worked fine then just didnt, once started worked a bit then stopped again, sometimes would restart sometimes not)

My dads cars terminals were so corroded he spent 40 minutes cleaning them, then let one of them go and probably 3 thimble full of blue powder fell out of the cables sleeve.

Report back if you figure it out!

red the manual and chickened out. i had way to much to do today then try the starter. it is not the old for truck.

took it to firestone this morning. $250 and it is done.
the starter must have been in bad shape the new one sounds really quiet and works great.

again thanks for all the help
