95 LeSabre Hard start

Hello all, My '95 LeSabre w/3800 seems to have something drawing power that is keeping the engine from turning over fast enough to start. A jump doesn't work, but
a fresh battery does. However, it still has a slow turn over speed. Starter drag? Any idea what the problem might be? Thanks.

Could indeed be a bad starter. Are you certain that the terminals were clean when you tried to jump it, and that you were getting good connections? Not uncommon to find a shorted starter to be the cause of the engine turning over slow.

Another thing...never forget to check the internals where the battery + and ground cables go into the battery.. These are well known for internal corrosion that can play tricks on a person.
When you are sure that ALL the connection points are good without a doubt, then move on to other suspects, like the starter, charging system, battery.
