Do you have a check engine on? If so take it to auto zone they can read your code for free and tell you what's wrong.

My Honda accord 2003 has trouble starting first of the day. Starts fine for the rest of the day, what could this be?


One thing that happens on older Hondas is that the fuel pressure bleeds off when they sit overnight. The fuel pump puts out 40 psi, and the system is supposed hold that pressure when the car is off. The check valve is weak. Then you try to start it and with no fuel pressure it takes awhile to start, and may run rough for a few seconds. To see if this is the cause, on your first start of the day, turn the key on but don't try to start it. When all the warning lights are on. The fuel pump will run for 2 seconds, then turn off. If it is quiet enough, you might hear it, or the main relay clicking off after 2 seconds. Cycle the key on for 2 seconds and then off, do this 5-6 times. Then try to start it. If it starts right up, you know the problem. Most people just accept this, because the check valve is part of the fuel pump, and this isn't cheap.

Car starts but it takes 10 seconds to start why??


could be discharged battery after battery sets awhile like overnight there is a voltage drop and it will cause slow starts also clean and inspect battery top, terminals, connections and cables for corrosion and or breaks all of which will make for slow starts and eventually a no start conditon

2006 hyundai sonata takes awhile to start


Could be a fuel problem. I would have someone check fuel pressure before and after cranking the engine. You may be loosing some fuel pressure back into the tank when the engine is off.

2003 chevy malibu, takes awhile to turn over and start, idle shoots up and down when started, also it stalls when i take turns


How long since a tune-up? Any applicable trouble codes? With extended crank, you can try cycling the key, on and off, a few times before you crank it. If that helps, have to check fuel system. Use a gage and check proper fuel pressure.
Check and clean the idle air system, see if it helps?

1993 Ford Mustang LX 2.3L 38,000 miles automatic Car takes a few seconds to start when turning the ignition When it does start is stutters a second then returns to idle When just started car hesitates...


Try getting the codes pulled at a car parts shop. Usually the computer will keep it in its history. It sounds like it is an ignition problem. If there is no stored code I would look at things in this order: spark plugs, ignition wires, distributor/coil. If none of these seem to be the problem you may have to take it to a shop. If it was just the start and idle problem I would say it is something with what I said but that high RPM thing seems strange.

My 2002 LS is hard to start after it sit awhile I change the fuel filter and the spark plugs and the coils on each plug but it still hard to start could it be my fuel pump is losing pressure when it sit...


it is very possible and i can tell you a way to help you see if that is the issue. after your car has sit a while (as long as it usually takes before it acts up) jump in the vehicle and turn the key to the postion just before the vehicle begins to turn over when all the dash lights come on. when the key is put in this position the fuel pump runs for a few seconds and then stops until vehicle is cranked, allow the pump to run for 5 seconds then turn the key back off. then return the key to the "run" postion i mentioned before and wait a few seconds then try to start it. if it fires right up you have allowed the vehicle to build fuel pressure before you started it, indicating you have a fuel pressure issue and you are most likely looking at a weak fuel pump.

Drive 4 awhile, turn off and will not start again. have to let sit 4 awhile. new fuel pump


Not necessarily. Check your fuel supply to your fuel rail. If there is fuel you may have an ignition problem that is heating up and won't start until it cools a bit. Fuel problems typically will start but takes a while to get fuel back up to the rail when they start leaking down.

Alero will crank awhile before it finally starts w/ more details


May have small fuel leak or fuel pump sending unit leak down. Or fuel pump psi low.

After 30 minutes try this turn key on. do not try to start wait 10 seconds turn key off then on again 10 seconds then try & start if it starts right away fuel system is losing PSI either back through the fuel pump or a leak in line. If you can find no leaks would suggest replace fuel pump & assembly.
Another possible but rare fuel injectors may be leaking fuel over time & dropping PSI needed for start up.
