We have an 09 Accord with about 11,000 miles with an intermittent starting problem. It appears to occur after short runs IE pulling the car out of the garage then back in for the evening. In the morning, it just cranks and cranks. It acts like it wants to catch but sometimes it doesn't. It took us about 5 mins to get it started yesterday morning. I know it's not the fuel as I changed stations several times.

2000 sebring....Intermittently cranks over and wont start. engine also shut done once while driving. At any given time engine cranks over and wont start..............Cold, hot , just drove for hours, just sat for days, just shut off, doesn't make any difference. May crank over once and start, sometimes 3, 5 , seven, a dozen times before starting. May start first crank for weeks at a time.

My 97 Suburban starts fine if driven everyday. If not driven for 1 or 2 days, it often has a horrible time trying to start. It turns over repeatedly before eventually firing. Once it's started, it may or may not hesitate. It seems that roughly 1 out of 10 starts it starts and runs perfectly with no hesitation at all. The other 9 times it has a really bad hesitation. By hesitation I mean, the motor seems to stop and then "catch up". At it's worst, if I really rev it up the exhaust will sputter an

My 91 honda accord is tempermental with starting. sometimes i put the key in the ignition and turn and nothing happens, not even a click. and sometimes i turn and the dash lights up. and some of the time, i can start it right up. an engine fan has been coming on even when i haven't driven it and runs for hours. and sometimes it only runs for a few minutes. i have had two battery tests done. one says that it is low and bad at a 5.75 reading. one said it was good at a 12 reading. the alternato

1998 isuzu rodeo has intermittent hard shift from 2nd to 3rd gear and extreme hard downshift from 3rd to 2nd gear. When this happens it may hard shift only a couple of times OR it may do the same thing for a day or two OR most recently it may continue for several days. Sometimes the hard shift occurs immediately after the car is started but sometimes it may be shifting smoothly with the engine & transmission "warmed up" and all of a sudden the "hard shift" begins. The downshift is a loud grind

I have a 1999 Saturn SL2 manual transmission, and ever since I have had it, there have been problems when it rains. The car will start but will sputter and almost want to stall out. Sometime the check engine light comes on. The RPM's will continue to jump even when in gear until i get into like 3rd gear or about 30 mph. It got so bad that one time the car wouldn't even start but eventually I was able to start it and my mechanic changed the spark plugs but it hasn't seemed to solve the issue. Wha

Every time I start my truck it misfires very badly. I actually gotta hold the pedal down pretty far to make it stay running. But once it warms up, it's fine but sometimes has a slight miss while driving under 60 mph. But when it's warm outside it starts fine.I think it may be the coil. (I posted something about this before and I have narrowed a few things down) I once had a bad coil on it before but it was the opposite. When it was cold it was fine but miss fired badly when warm.

I have a 93 hyundai Scoupe with a few intermittent problems. First is that after running for short periods of time, it sometimes will not start again for a while. The engine is cranking, but not catching. This only happens once in a while though. I never have any problems starting it after it has been sitting cold for any length of time, such as over night. Another problem I occasionally have is the rpms will surge to 3k and hold there for usually no more than a minute. It will still drive no pr

My 2008 Envoy Denali's heater blower is intermittent. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. Usually if it does not work when I start the vehicle, I can restart the car a couple of times and the blower will then come on. If I turn the car off while the blower is working, it continues to run. Once the blower is on, if I try to change the blower speed, it may shut the unit off. again, sometimes does, and sometimes doesn't. I am mechanically inclined and would like to fix myself if possi
