Since replacing my battery with an Optima red-top, I have had a strange starter problem.When I get into the car and turn the key, nothing will happen for a second or two, then the starter will start turning at about 1 rpm, slowly increasing speed until after about 5-7 seconds it spins fast enough for the engine to catch. If the car is warm, this behavior is intermittant. Cold, its pretty much a guarantee.I have not yet checked the battery, so that is what I plan to do next. Assuming that the battery passes, is this a recognized problem?
