Car not starting
The car battery is good, I'm getting spark at the spark plugs, I'm getting fuel but the engine is turning too slow to start. If it is the starting motor how would I know?

if it was the starter it would turn too slow to fire over. Or not turn over at all.

How do you know that the battery is good? Have you checked the volts as your cranking it? If its turning too slow it wouldn't be fuel or spark, it would be battery or starter. Check the wires to make sure there is no corrosion or rips.

I got the battery checked under a load test this morning. Also the battery is 2 months old. The starting motor was getting really hot when i tried to start the car.

Make sure you check the wires then

the ground wire from the battery is getting very hot as well. Which wires should I check, the plug wire are new also.

Make sure your grounds are not loose and in the correct location, check all connections going to your starter..

My ground wire off the battery is fine but i'll have to check the ground off the starter

are your plugs wet from fuel? after trying to start it over and over it might be. Double check them,if they are dry ur not fueling the fire to make smoke.
