Tham Posted January 20 Report Share Posted January 20 Hello to all the good people here, I last posted in this forum way back in 2013, from my records. I was driving a KE70 from 1994 until 2010, after which I drove a Proton Saga, until now. This has the Mitsubishi 4G13, 1300 cc engine, overhead cam. I still come back here because the people here are very knowledgeable and helpful. My stock starter is still usable, though getting old, and I was thinking of keeping a spare. These days, they have standard or normal starters, and "high speed" starters. (I am not sure, but I think these high speed starters are also called "planetary gear reduction" starters.) I am not sure which type the car came fitted with. The standard type is usually rated at 600 watts. The high speed types are usually rated at 1,200 watts. Would that mean that, as the battery gets a little weaker with age, it might have trouble cranking these high speed starters ? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
