Whenever I start the car it takes a few seconds sometimes minutes before starting. Sometimes I have to turn the key 2 to 3 times before the engine starts. once or twice it starts normally .

Mcdevito75 here, It could be slow fuel delivery to the engine, Have your shop change the gas filter and check the fuel pump pressure.

Sometimes it starts and some time not

It should be under warranty, take it back to the dealer. Sounds like your losing the fuel prim to the engine. Before starting it turn the key's to the accessory for about 5 sec before starting it and see if the helps start's the car.

Car sometimes won't start

this is a pass key problem, try this.

1) Put the key in the ignition and turn to the "ON" position. Leave it that way for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes turn the key and take it out. Repeat this process (2) more times (3 times, 30 minutes total) This should reset the passlock system to recognize your key

Need to know signs of my starter going bad

I have a 96 Cavalier and lately, sometimes when I go to start my car, I turn the key and the engine won't crank. All of the dash lights turn on, so I don't think it would be the battery. If I wait a few minutes and try again, it fires right up. This is probably the first sign of the starter failing. I've been told to whack the starter with a hammer while someone is turning the key, but have also been told that with Cavaliers build in the 90's and up, this is a no-no. There are magnets inside the starter that can break if hit with enough force. I have yet to have the starter fail to the point of not being able to start it at all, but I'm sure that time is coming. Hopefully, I can trade this POS in for something decent.
