2001 venture van. i replaced the battery about a month ago,now trying to start it it turns over very slow or acts like nothings going to happen for a split second then it starts.does this sound like a starter problem?

I would begin by cleaning all the contacts at the battery and at the starter. Dirty connections can rob amps.

make sure the solienoid ( sell-in-noid) connections are tight and clean.

my truck is doing the same thing, but mostly when it is warm.
i have put a new battery in and still the same. my solienoid
is on my starter under the truck and haven`t had time to check it.

I had a dodge neon that had non-consistent voltage going through the dash--it was the dirty end of a cable connection to the starter.

Go out and try to start it in the dark while looking under the hood, if the connection is bad enough you will see it glow as the engine turns over. If this does not help, dis-assemble and clean the connections at the battery, on the starter/selonoid, and the ground cable connection to the block.
