hi guys

I am not sure if it is normal to have more clicks when I start the car which is parked underground garage for about a day with the temperature of -4 C degree.

I just changed my battery 2 weeks ago and I want to know if anything else is wrong.

Usually tic tic and engine starts

but today was like tic tic tic tic and engine started.

Is it normal?? seems like battery is draining? or the starter is getting worse??

Once I started the car and I turned off then started again. Then it was normal tic tic then engine started.

Is it normal??

its because your engine is cold along with the oil. so the oil is thick and it takes a little longer before it goes through your motor. also in the cold, everything shrinks so the clearances aren't as tight as they would be when the engine is warm.

its usually pretty normal...

you still shouldn't have problems starting. if it gets worse it's the starter for sure.
