Q: Hard to start car

asked by on

My car is having a hard time starting.

There are a few reasons that can cause a hard start condition on your Honda Passport. The information provided is a bit limited, which makes it challenging to determine the exact cause of the hard start condition. Worn out spark plugs, a faulty fuel pressure regulator or even a dirty idle air control motor can duplicate a hard start condition. With so many possibilities, it may be time to enlist the assistance of a certified mechanic to come by and inspect your Honda. They will have the experience to quickly identify the cause of your car’s hard start condition. They will also be able to perform the repairs necessary to allow your Honda to fire up without struggling every time.
