The car is missing and hard to start.
Hello, with these two symptoms together, it sounds like you could have an issue with the fuel pump. Generally when a fuel pump is having issues you may have to attempt to start the engine multiple times before it will start and if the fuel pump does not send enough fuel to the engine it will be missing. A certified technician would be able to diagnose your fuel pump for any issues.
