I have an 87 YJ, 2.5 liter manual. The other day I got in it and it started right up. An hour later, I went to start it and all I got was clicking ( click, click, click) and it sounded like the engine wanted to turn over but, just couldn't.
My battery is almost new and so is my starter. I tried to jump start it but there was still the clicking....
I eventually pulled the negative cable from the battery and reconnected it a minute or two later. The engine cranked right over.
This morning the engine turned over no problems, clicking, etc.
Later this afternoon it was very slow to turn over . It eventually did.
Any ideas or has anyone experienced this before? And what was the outcome?
