During one of the no start incidents, you can check for ignition and fuel pressure (including injector operation). Electrical components will sometimes cut out as heat builds (coils, for instance). But, if you test the appropriate components during the period in which it is not re-starting, you will find the interruption. If you want the required diagnostic steps performed by a certified Mechanic, dispatched by YourMechanic right to your location, please request a no start diagnostic and the responding certified mechanic will get this taken care of for you. If you have further questions or concerns, do not hesitate to re-contact YourMechanic as we are always here to help you.
