Fuel delivery, probably.

Try the following - remove the airbox and spray some starter fluid into the throttle body while someone else cranks the engine. If it tries to start up/run for a few seconds, then you know it's a fuel problem. If it doesn't change anything, then it's most likely a spark issue.

Check the plugs/wires/etc for fouling.

SOURCE: my car was a bit sluggish to start then 1 day

check/clean battery terminals, if ok check starter wires for voltage(while turning key to start) and tightening or corrosion. If all check out ok replace the starter. If you have no voltage at the starter check your relays and ignition switch. Hopefully this helps

Hi mate
In is possable you have a faulty coolant temp sensor.
This could be confirmed by having a diagnosis check done at a garage.
It might have 2 sensors fitted so if it needs them make sure you replace the right one

did they run a test on the alternator!! at battery when off should be at least 12.6 volts, less than 12 volts battery is bad. when running at battery voltage should be at least 14.1 to 14.7, thats if alternator is ok. if less than above replace alternator. if alt. is ok, could be a bad battery.
