"We are trying to decide whether our starter motor is OK or not.
When spinning with the exhaust valves open, and a cold engine, it draws 130 amps. This seems to rise to about 250A when the valves are closed, but it is hard to tell since the engine starts.
Has Volvo published normal values? If so, where?
Have any of you measured the current when spinning} and when starting?
