    Question Having Start Up Issues

    Hi all, well heres the problem, the car turns over, but has to crank for like 10 seconds before it sputters to a start, or i can turn it over for like a second, roll the key back and then start it like normal. Any suggestions. Thanks

    Any details on the "car" you can give?
    Year, model, mileage, recent work done.....any other things??

    Have you checked the battery?? and its connections for corrosion??
    Maybe the start is going out??

    Hard to say without any other info on the vehicle.

    I would start with a fuel pressure test.
    When you hear hoofbeats, look for horses not zebras.
