I'm can't start my car! Here is the low down, new battery I put in today because other battery was dead. Put a gm starter (rebuild) in my car with heat wrap on it, new battery cables, put full length headers on car( month ago) with no starter problems, car leaks oil. Car will usually start normal when cold, yet sometimes like now, when i turn the key, I hear a click sound, so the solnoid engaged and a very slow turning sound from my starter motor. With having a new battery, and fresh cables, I don't think power to the starter is a problem, also the car has been sitting in the cold for three hours, so heat shouldn't be a problem now...could it be because of oil getting on the starter motor to make it not operate? Also my timing is onle 8 BTDC.
