Starting a 5.9 diesel
I have a 2002 Dodge Ram 3500, 24V 5.9L turbo, I bought new. A week ago sounded like the starter was getting ready to go. Hence the "grinding" sound made by a starter. I replaced today with a brand new starter not a reman. Its still making that same grinding sound ( abt 5-10 sec ) before actually starting. The batteries are abt 2 years old. Could it be a bad new starter, battery or something else??? It has 171,000+ miles on it. Appreciate any ideas here. Thanx
