When starting my car it does turn-over, but dies after several seconds. I wait a while and after several tries it finally starts and remains on. What causes this?
The fuel pump may loose pressure from a clogged fuel filter which causes the pump to not build up enough pressure to keep the engine running. I would recommend replacing the filter first, then check the pressures to see if they are in specifications.
If you need help with these checks, feel free to reach out to a certified mechanic who can diagnose these symptoms and figure out why your car is hard to start.
