Kaya sabi ng pinsan ko, chcheck nia yung ilalim para linisin ung starter baka dun lng daw kasi minsan parang nahihirapan mag start yung engine, parang naghahabol ng hinga before mag start (often happens after ng byahe).

    But anyway, magpapalit na po ako this week ng battery. Ayoko din po talagang huminto sa gitna ng byahe thank you po.
    a dead battery will not usually cause the car to stall while driving.
    but it will probably not start anymore, once the engine is turned off.

    i have a colleague.
    she replaces her battery every two years, regardless.
    na-matayan na kasi siya ng battery sa bahay.

    good luck.

    btw,
    when i replace my original battery, i opt for the next smaller size.
    i did not notice shortness of battery life.
    car is stock. no aftermarket electrical toys.

    Kung luma na ang sasakyan, possible din na maluwag na ang carbon brush na naka kabit sa starter rotor. Nangyari ito sa 17 year old car dati.

    Depende sa engine temperature minsan kung maluwag na tolerance nito nag loose contact na.

    Ano po ang problem if cold start ayaw mag start agad? Nakakarinig lang ako ng isang click sa first attempt. Then on the second attempt, mag start naman xa agad?
    Nag try din po ako na patayin then wait for 2-3 hours then start, okay naman na.. All lights are good, stereo, aircon are also working.
    Kahapon lang po nag start na 1 click sa first attempt then starts sa second, tapos ngayon na ulit nanaman kanina..

    Ano po kaya problem and need paayos or palitan? Thanks in advance po as always..

    i re-read your post again, and...
    yikes!
    i mis-understood!

    re-reading it again...
    i think that's your starter solenoid, po.
    have someone see it. if i am correct, it will only get worse.
    one day, you won't be able to start your car anymore. ... not even if you replaced your battery.

    it's sometimes difficult to diagnose starter solenoid problem, because they are initially intermittent...

    also, tighten the battery terminals.
    +1 dito. Sabay linis na din battery terminals. Check din wires at grounding papuntang starter.

    Get a voltmeter that can be attached to the cigarette lighter socket

    A car battery contain 6 cells..each cell carry 2.1volts for a total of 12.6volts

    A dead cell will reduce that to 10.5volts and so on and so forth

    When the engine is running the voltage reading of the voltmeter should be => 13.5volts. Otherwise, the alternator is not functioning properly

    If the voltmeter reading is in proper order, then it's not the battery nor the alternator

    Get that tool and it will save you a lot of money and trouble

    this is very similar to what the battery shops do. only, their gadget (a handheld voltmeter from Ace or CDR king, or a big, heavy thing on wheels) is clamped to the battery beside the engine, and not to the cigarette lighter.

    order one now!
    before stocks run out...
    heh heh.

    seriously,
    i'd chance on a surplus first, or have mine overhauled.
    palitan ang electronics kung kailangan... the rest of the starter is near-bulletproof.
