Hi My Hyundai Getz is having problems starting. Sometime its starts fine, other times i have to turn the key for a while before it starts and sometimes it wont start at all. When it starts it drives perfectly fine with no problems for as long as i like, its just starting it which is the problem. I don't think its the battery, i have a full tank of fuel and my coolant etc all seem full. Do you have any suggestions as to what the problem might be? -Thanks.
