Problems with starter or delco,on my rover 620 petrol.. need advice.

Hello people here in BG is winter with lots of snow and -20 degrees,
last year on my rover 620
i bought new DENSO spark plugs they was best possible they are iridium ,
i also bought new
car ac battery its called EXEDY 64mah brand new i bought it like november or december i dont remember very well 3 years warranty everywhere in my country bg,
But my problem staill remain
my car starts extremely hard and slow, lets clarify
here is snow -20 degrees before 2-3 years i changed my starter with USED SAME GENUINE but i guess its dead as well,when i try to start my car i must try to start it like 50 times to start
as i told before spark plugs are new
,car ac battery is new
decent cables silicone ones,
is it worth to invest to new starter?
i also use expensive oil unfortunately it doesnt help me i use motul 5w 40 or 10w 40 or repsol 10w 40
my car is year 1994 so its before face lift my starter is brand MITSUBA/ MADE in europe by valeo.
on ebay they are brand new starters and they cost arm and leg...
Do facelift models use better starters please advice if i buy new facelift starter will it be better or better stick to mitsuba made by valeo in EUrope ?
i use this sort of tricks but still doesnt help - i switch from off to on so i can hear my pump petrol several times and my oil level is going up i also start for 2-3 seconds my headlights so my car battery became more alife,after i shut down everything i start the car but even with my tricks its still doesnt help.
so the problem its not the oil i guess its crappy starter...


People i forgot to mention that my delco died before years and i bought used and i replaced it,can delco be the problem as well !?
When weather is hot i dont have any problems and my car starts from 1st time when temperature drops below
0 or its close to 0 i got this problem i have this each year so i am frustrated a lot.
Also after i start my car and if i shut it down and if i start it again after lets say 6/12 hours it starts from first time if i start it up after 24 hours same mizery....
very tought start. after like 50 attempts from starter to start it i dont know if its starter or delco or other thing.

Sorry to hear of your problem.

What are the CCA of your battery. The cold cranking amps?
What are your earth connections like?
My tf played up in the winter (not -20 though) but was ok in the summer.

Your car battery will have two amperage numbers on it.
64ah = 64 amp hours. This is how many hours 1 amp can be used. 2amps would last 32 hours.

The cca or larger number on the battery is how well the battery can start your car.
My battery is 540cca. It works in summer but not always in a cold winter.

If your engine oil is thicker because it is cold, this can make starting your car difficult.

Do you put additives in the fuel? The fuel when I visit France is different to the U.K. I add a cleaner.

Вашият автомобил батерия ще има две ампераж номера върху него.
64ah = 64 амперчаса. Това е колко часа може да се използва 1 усилвател. 2amps ще продължи 32 часа.

CCA или по-голям номер на батерията е колко добре батерията може да започне колата си.
Батерията ми е 540cca. Тя работи през лятото, но не винаги в студена зима.

Ако маслото на двигателя е по-дебел, защото е студено, това може да се направи като се започне колата си трудно.

Смятате ли, сложи добавки в горивото? Горивото, когато посети Франция е различно от Великобритания да добавя по-чиста.

Hello again i have this car for more than 6 years
i have used

i had for 6 years 3 car battery
i dont remember first 2nd was
72am it was huge,
and my current 64mah
car was with same problem all the time i changed several times for 6 years spark plugs,delco,alternator and
starter same problem
so i know all this things but i still guess bad alternator can be faulth
trust me its not the fuel,as well
i got friends same cars
same years
000 problems,
i know people with crappier car ac batteries start in worse than me,so its not my car battery as i told before its almost brand new 3-4 months old.
i dont use any addictives in my fuel,
i drive mainly on lpg but i start and shut down on petrol only.
There is a issue with that car thats it but services cant find it i plan to get new oem alternator.
is it a good idea since my old charge only for max 12v and it must charge at 14 or 13.8?
