ever since i got the truck it takes about 2 times of turning the key to get it started.... i was thinkning maybe it was the fuel pump.... and lately its been getting harder to start.. . like more times of turning the key and making it catch....

any ideas of what the problem is?...

ah trouble turning over? then starter sounds more likely to me. I would follow the wire from the batt to the starter and make sure connections are good.

Check fuel pressure too, could be a shitty regulator or a clogged filter...

how old is that battery again? and the starter? Might try stealing a battery from someone and putting it in to see if that solves it.

starter for sure, go bang on it and you may get 1 mrpoe start out of it to get you to the parts store.

:word:

Get you a new starter. Check the battery and have them test the Alternator just to make sure it is working properly.

ok i think its the battery.... other than explaining the problem to blownchevy and him telling me a million times that its the battery....

i just went and tried rolling up my windows... and good lord... they took so long to roll up... definetly the battery... i wonder if i have a short somewhere that would be draining it? maybe the crack in the top of my battery isnt good either..
