As far as the battery problem is concerned, I had a similar problem with mine. Battery would charge fine and remain charged but still slow crank and no start. Found the starter was bad. No problems since replacing with mini high torque starter. I believe someone else also mentioned the stater.

Thanks Clint I'm gluing my hair back in as I write this, next time I'll be sure to number those strands as I pull them Rolling On The Floor Laughing......we shall see what sitting for a few days does to the new Optima.
Plus I finally ordered the fuel sending unit as well.....supposed to be here tomorrow.
