Having problems with your Chevrolet Silverado ?
I have a 1997 chevy silverado. When it sits for a day or two it starts real hard. It begins to turn over normal and then turns over real low and slow and then goes back to normal and finally starts. My opinion is that the starter is shot and is draining the battery because I notice on my volt guage that the alternator is working hard to get the battery back to normal operating range on the guage after starting.
Sounds like you may have faulty field coils within the starter. You can take it off and go to a starter/alternaor shop and have it check, they can ascertain if it is pulling excess amperage, and either make repairs or replacment unit.
