Help Extended Crank
I posted earlier (see "Battery or Alternator or Something else?), but thought maybe this subject line would be more accurate. I have a 2000 528i that has just had the CCV and throttle body replaced a month ago. Now, I am noticing when I start the engine, there is an extended crank. I used to be able to turn the key and the car would start almost immediately. This has been going on for a week now. Once it starts, it is fine. It just usually turns longer before actually starting. I am hoping it's just the battery, but any other thoughts would be appreciated! (I had the battery changed a couple of years back, but I live in the desert so they tend to go dead faster).
