    latley my truck seems like it has a little trouble starting. like a "weak" start, is the best I could describe it. but once its running everything is fine.

    Has anyone else ever had something like this with their vehicles? I thought I read somewhere about fouled plugs?

    How old is your battery? Have you done a load test on it?

    I would take it to a place like autozone or o'reilly and they usually will load test for free. Even if only a fe months old sometime a major change in climate can kill a battery that isnt that old

    How cold is it where you are? The other day it was 1 degree when I went to start my truck, and I had to try it twice to get it to go.

    And to add on to what Cr250 said, I know Pep Boys also runs free load tests for anyone.

    x2. Does sound like a battery issue. I would think fouled plugs would cause the truck to idle or run erratic. While your're at it, have your alternator checked out.
