Just started happening, you turn the key and get a kinda grunt noise then quiet, and Then it turns over and starts.

Battery is fine, alternator checks out.

Just had a new timing belt put in a couple of weeks ago, but it did fine afterwards.

Pretty sure we're gonna get stuck somewhere when it fails to start.

Thoughts?

You might pull your starter and have it load tested at a auto parts store. My starter; was in the process of failing, it started to turn really slow, it actually started smoking and then pretty much stopped working. I had it load tested and drawing Allot of amps; replaced it with a rebuilt oem Bosch unit and everything was fine after that.

thanks.

Just seems different from a starter issue, almost like it needs to build up power before trying to start. Is there some type of relay before the starter that could be dying?
