Having some trouble starting our 850D. After the glow plugs heat up i turn the key and sometimes it starts like normal but it mostly just makes a blowing noise kinda like the starter isnt connected to anything. sometimes it will catch and turn the motor a couple times berfore (slipping?) sometimes it starts and other times itl try for a second and then slip.

Has anyone had this problem or know how to fix it?
any input is greatly appreciated.

It could be your battery or connections at the starter, Put a battery charger on it at 30 amps and start it. If it starts good then the battery has low amps. Also could be the starter dragging which means it is taking a lot of amps to turn over. You will need to remove it and have it tested.
