2007 Dodge Charger SRT8: Hard Start
by Josh Sadlier, Senior Editor on February 9, 2016
This was a warm start, incidentally, after a number of miles on the highway, and the symptoms persisted during subsequent starts. I'm guessing it's not the battery, since a man with a truck full of batteries gave us a new one back in November. If it is, maybe our aftermarket stereo's sucking some juice when it shouldn't be.
Battery Man also checked the starter and the charging system, and he gave both of them passing grades. Given all of that, I'm thinking alternator, which kind of comes with the territory when you're dealing with older cars, even nicely preserved specimens like our Charger.
Any other guesses? Stay tuned for an official diagnosis.
