So it sounds like it starts fine when cold, then you drive it to Home Depot (or Pottery Barn, depending on gender
) and when you jump back in to start it and go home itâ€™s turning over slow like the battery is dieing. That what your saying?
If so, that sounds like a dying starter to me. Do the battery check that fmthefixer described and if the battery and charging system are working, Iâ€™d personally think itâ€™s the starter itself. Theyâ€™re very vulnerable to heat, that may be why you notice it more after running the air conditioner since doing so builds more heat in the engine bay.
