Taking Longer To Start

Okay so usually when i start my lude it starts within like you know a second or 2. but every once in a while it takes like 3 to 4 seconds. It randomly does this and i dont know why, and idk if its a big problem.

Re: Taking Longer To Start

If it worries you then check the battery. It's possible that the number of cold cranking amps (CCA - the bit that does the work) is low for one reason or another. If it's a wet cell also check that the holes have appropriate levels of water in them. If they're low fill them with distilled/demineralised water.
