2000 Yukon XL 5.3 labored starting

Recommended Posts



Recently the truck has been starting poorly. It has never failed to start, but chugs very slowly almost like the battery is dead. I thought maybe the one in it was going since it was several years old, bought a new one and put it in, made sure battery going in was fully charged, but still having the same issue. It doesn't run poorly, volt gauge reads normal, but just starts like battery is low. Sometimes it chugs more slowly than other times. It does have 253k on the original starter, alternator is recent and is an AC-Delco part, so I do not think it could be causing this. I have not crawled under it to take a look at the starter yet. Problem has existed for about 2 weeks now. Any help is appreciated. 


Thank you.
