Q: Car not starting all of the time

asked by on

My car doesn't start sometimes. I also need some suspension work, but I am not exactly sure what I need to have done.

The no start can be from the cam or crank sensor, or the fuel pump. The system would need to be scanned for a code indicating the possible problem. The suspension should also be checked over completely for any issues during the repair visit. I recommend that you have a mechanic, like the ones from YourMechanic, come by and properly diagnose your starting issues.
