  • Starting problems

    when it is getting cold i have a hard time to start my
    White Inno
    before starting Checked the Battery with multimeter shows 12,5 Volt
    when car is running checked again battery during runnig shows 13.8 Volt
    i think those numbers are good.
    Also have a new Starter and the Battery is fairly new
    symtons:
    It is very slowy turning over, even sometimes comes to a stop, then
    suddenly it fires
    Also when once started and driven , it starts pretty good.
    Any advice.

    Bad Grounds?

    Corroded earth perhaps? check the ground strap, or add one?

          It might be worth checking the timing. Over advanced timing can cause similar symptoms especially on high compression engines. Also measure the voltage at the battery connection to the starter solenoid with the engine off and running just like you did on the battery. If the voltage is low check the full length of the cable from the battery to the starter solenoid.

              Timing

              I agree with the timing diagnosis, and the battery cable check

                I checked the connection at the Solanoid from battery and to the
                starter. sure they all 3 were not tight enough!!!
                so tighten it and the car started right up in the morning.
                that was to easy.
                thks for all the help

                  Not sure if you've already got this fixed, but to tie in with Kelley's post, you may want to check that your mechanical advance mechanism is free to move. An advance mechanism that locks up in the full advance position would create an over advanced condition at startup. Might be time to put a drop of oil onto the upper distributor shaft.
