Q: Takes long for car to start

asked by on

Hello, I have a clean title 2014 Ford Mustang, it has never had any accidents but by mistake my fuel tank went to empty and I tried to start it after it sat for a couple of hours since I forgot. Then I fueled it and now the car is hard to start, it takes a bit longer than usual when it is starting. Before that mishap it will start strong. A mechanic told me to just buy fuel injector cleaner and give it time and it will be back to normal. What are your thoughts? Thanks
