My 1985 Grand National works fine until i try starting it up again. i dont know a lot about cars. If you do please tell
me how i can fix this problem and how much it would cost. the car has a little over 70,000 miles on it
May need to replace the starter cylinoid or install / replace starter heat shield. May be worth taking a look into, relatively cheap fixes
Check the voltage on your battery as well, how old is it?
well i have a new battery. when i charge it, it runs fine but as soon as i turn the engine off it wont start again without a jump.
Check your alternator maybe? even if it's brand new and even if its the 2nd one, on my old 85' Z28 Camaro the alternator was bad when it was brand new then the new one i got was faulty, i actually went through 3 - and let me tell you, when you go through 2 you start to think its something else.
No just auto zone crap never ever ever ever buy electrical from auto zone or advanced. Robert I have heard soooo many stories identical to yours about alternators and starters.
okay, i thought it was the alternator. thank you robert.
