i only said that because the first gens iFirst I've heard of this. Still bullet proof. First gen had oil o ring issues, second gear issues, shift segments falling apart, death wobble, lol. Just to name a few.... Hell I snapped a shaft on my 97 doing a rolling burnout in second gear. Second gen has been around since 2009 and this is the first case of a possible decomp pin being stuck, and we still don't know for sure.... I've seen batteries with bad cells do some weird shit, so let's not rule that out. Need to do a load test and watch recovery rate.
it’s not going to be the starter motor bud. Starters go out they go out, they get weak they stay weak, just like the battery, I dont think the second crank the battery found it deep in its soul to find more juice. Second crank proves this process of elimination, the second start was immediately after the first.Was it big/expensive job to do?
