Occasionally, about every 6 to 8 times tried, the engine will turn but not start. If I turn the key off for about 3 seconds, it usually starts within a few turns. Do you know what can cause this?

A year, make, model, and engine size would help but I will through this at you.

Instead of just trying to start the car turn the key to the run position and wait 3 seconds. Turn the key off and immediately turn the key back to the run position and wait another 3 seconds. Turn the key off then try to start. Do this every time you try to start the car. If you symptom never occurs when you start the vehicle like this than I would suggest taking a closer look at the fuel system.

I’m happy to assist further over the phone at

EVAP control system problems - P0440 and P0456 codes

1) Determine the engine code cause for the Check Engine Light (C.E.L. or CEL)
2) Insert key into ignition
3) turn key to "on" posittion without starting the vehicle
4) VERY VERY quickly turn the key off one click, then on, then off, then on; cycling for 3 turns of the key (NOTE: you might have to try this a couple of times to get it just right)
5) leave on, and read the engine diagnostic code(s) that are output in the mileage counter
6) We got Code P0440 (or P 0440 or P-0440) (variations inserted for search engines)
7) A quick search of the web yielded about 3 or 4 usefull details.
8) Diagnostic code P0440 is the Evaporative Emissions Control System Malfunction (failure) of some type. Details of this type of failure and what the Evap System does for you:
9) Other web pages indicated it might be as simple as the Gas Cap being seated incorrectly, or not sealing correctly any more
10) I took it off, yes it was seated incorrectly, and reseatted it firmly
11) Now you need to clear the Check Engine Light indicator (it will clear *eventually* over time if this is TRULY the problem - I recommend you clear it now - that way is a deeper problem with the EVAP system exists, it should come on again - giving another clue something else is amiss
12) One suggestion was to take the Negative (black) cable off the battery for 10 to 20 seconds -- I did - for 30 seconds to be sure
13) You *must* turn the Engine on and start the vehicle all the way before the Check Engine Light might clear - if it doesn't try the following:
14) Turn the ignition on 50 times - yes - 50 times - but be careful, every time you cycle the ignition on (without starting the vehicle) you are turning on the Fuel Pump - continuous cycling can theoretically (according to some posts) cause it to heat up and be damaged - so every 10 times stop and let it rest for a full minute to cool down.
15) After 30 times of doing this (3 sets of 10), turn the engine fully on - see if the check engine light goes off) if it doesn't, do the remaining 20 times (2 sets of 10).
16) if it still doesn't go off, you may have a deeper issue that might require attention of the mechanics

If my jag has been sitting for more than 24 hours the first time I try to start the engine takes maybe 8 or 9 cranks before it will start, after this she starts quickly.

Sounds like the engine oil is quite thick when cold so you probably need to check the last time the oil was changed along with the filter.once it gets slightly warm the engine takes less cranking amps to turn over so it will start quicker.

The owners manual says for setting the timing is at 8 degrees,When using the timing light, What mark is 8 degrees?

The engine turns clockwise, the first mark is tdc (top dead centre) and the second mark is preset at 8 degrees so when using a timing light line up the second mark on the pulley with the fixed mark on the timing cover at idle

My 1994 Chrystler Concorde will not start in the morning. I feel like I do not hear the fuel pump come on and when I do it will then start. Should I replace the fuel pump or something else?

If the car sits for two days or more will it start with little issue? I only ask this as I noted the year of your car; with time the fuel injectors will leak. Over night the engine can then flood but once we turn it over for a time or two and then walk away we allow the fuel to evaporate out of the cylinders letting the car starts. If this is the case try starting the car with the gas pedal fully pressed. Keep it fully down as you try to start the car (this shuts off the fuel injectors) turn over the engine 5-8 seconds (keep the pedal down) and then wait 10-15 seconds before trying again. Remember to keep the gas pedal down, try this 6-8 times to see if she'll start (if it does let go of the gas pedal not to over rev the engine) If this is the case you'll need to have your injectors replaced.
I hope this may have helped,
