lets fix it 9/11/2012weak battery probably
jm31772 11/3/2012I have the same problem and engine on my 08 xB with 142,000 miles. Today I was watching Trucks! on Spike TV. They describe the slow start problem could be corrosion, and after replacing the battery it happen again. This got my attention, Beacuse I repalced the OEM battery after 4 years. Since I have replaced the replacement battery twice.And now it's again starting "to slow start". This makes sense to me because when it rains over night my warning check engine light will come on for a few days. Anyway, it lead me to research and saw your question. I hope this helps. Good luck.
