    Question Needles shuddering when cranking!?!

    Hi Guys,

    Well they say problems come in 3s

    Recently everytime I start my car from cold all my dial needles shudder and jump about. Then my car runs at about 1300 rpm for a while.

    Is this a bad / dying battery? Anyone else had this?

    ps can't find my multi-meter right now ... so can't test the batt / alt.

    Thanks,

    J
