Engine Trouble

Well after going on the run to slade yesterday my truck has had trouble turning over/starting. I was guessing it was from all the water and mud puddles we went through, but all i know is it is very slow to start. Since I am very mechanically inclined when it comes to engines i figured I'd post something on here (and I didn't want to pay a ton just to get it diagnosed at a shop)

thanks

Could also be the contacts in the starter. If it is the contacts it might not be long before you get a NO start condition.

I would recommend odyssee over Optima, but that is probably more personal preference.

ON problems with the truck starting. Could be the mud as you thought for the cause. But things to look into, as stated, starter and contacts, alternator needing to be cleaned out, battery.

also clean Maf and air cleaner out if it has plenty of "fire"
If that doesnt work, might change out the RGR valve.
