2006 Kia Rio Sometimes Cranks Slow
A quick question if you don't mind.
My daughter has a 2006 Kia Rio 5. She has had it for just over a year.
Ever since she got it it sometimes has a hard time cranking. Not that it
cranks slow but more like there is all of a sudden a ton of pressure
holding it back. Then it seems to "get over the hump".. that's the best
way I can describe it. You sometimes hear this with muscle cars when
they start. Its almost like the compression is so high that it slows the
starter down to the point of stopping for a couple of seconds. I have
checked for codes with a scan tool - there are none. I put a new battery
in it a few days ago and cleaned the connections at the battery. I hate
the buy a new starter if it isn't the problem.
Thanks so much for your time,
