99 wj starter acting lazy.
my 99 wj has a mysterious slow-to-start problem. The starter is turning the engine over too slowly to start without a few attempts. This does not happen all the time, occasional occurs on cold mornings, however will sometimes happen in the middle of a warm afternoon in the grocery store parking lot. this is a 4.0 engine.
I had a dealership check the starter, battery, alt, etc. this afternoon and everything checked out fine. The terminals at the battery have been thoroughly cleaned, and visually all cables appear to be fine. I suspect that I have a bad ground cable, starter cable, etc. that appears fine, but is actually rotten somewhere.
The starter appears to be the original, and the jeep has 92,000 on the odometer. Thanks for any advice.
