tuko Posted August 20, 2007 Share Posted August 20, 2007 The past month or so, the hybrid has developed a starting problem, where it it becomes harder to start. For example, lets say your sitting in the drive way and start the engine and then turn it off.......do that several times, each time you try to start the motor again, there appears to be more drag on the starter, to the point where it will finally not even turns over. So, what I've done to this point is bought a new start motor, a new start solenoid. Added 2 ground cables to the start motor, and there are now 2 ground cables at the battery to. Doing all this, made no difference at all, still the same starting charateristics. This has me totally stumped, I'm now leaning towards that there might be a problem in the bellhousing area. For one, it IS leaking like a siv in there, so I'm going to pull all the guts out between the frame rails this week. Anybody ever experience such problems before or have an idea what my problems might be? This one really has me bewildered, to the point where I removed the road taxes and insurance yesterday, as it looks as if the hybrid will be sitting in the drive way for a very long time.
