HI, I'm new so I'll apologize in advance for my ignorance
I have a 2004 Dodge 2500, new to me about 3 months ago. Always seemed to have a "hard start", ie would crank quite a bit before firing up, but always fired. First cold snap here in Colorado, about 34 degrees in a.m. it wouldnt start. Thought it was a battery, jumped it started right up. Started fine about 12 times yesterday. Today, no start in a.m. (about 28 degrees). Couldnt get jump to work, plugged in, got a ride to work, came back about 1 hr or so, fired right up.
Suggestions? Got batteries tested yesterday, guy said 975 on one and over 1100 on other... Guys at work said it's common and you just need to plug it in. That seems ridiculous since it's only 30 degrees and I will often be at work for 10+ hrs with no plug.... gonna be a long winter... LOL.
Any advise on preventative maintenance, etc is greatly appreciated!!
