Hi there. There are a number of issues that will make a car hard to start. Everything from the electrical system to the fuel system to the actual starter itself can be the problem. It’s also possible that the O2 sensor’s electrical harness is faulty. In order to correctly diagnose this issue, you should have a professional mobile mechanic come to your location and complete a car is hard to start inspection.
