1994 Ford E350 starter issue? HELP!
I have a 1994 E350 Diesel Short bus. It won't start up after sitting for a few months. The battery is in okay shape according to the autoparts store. When I try to start it, it starts to turn over and I get some smoke out the tailpipe. However, the engine doesn't get going fast enough and the battery drains really fast. I think it might be the starter. I'm not good at mechanical stuff. It's parked in tricky spot between two trees (one in front and one behind with about 3 feet of clearance either direction) so I'm not sure if a tow would be possible.
Is replacing a starter something a novice can do?
If you've got any ideas, I'd love to hear them!!!!
