sounds like the starter motor is not getting the power needed? have you check your ground connection and cleaned your battery terminals?

thanks for the help crazzywolk you were right. where the battery grounds to the engine was loose. tightened it down the engine turns over pretty fast now. i guess its been loose ever since i got the truck because it would always turnover slow.
