Hi there. In many cases, the hard cold starting issues you’re experiencing are caused by fuel delivery issues or ignition timing problems. This could be caused by a dirty or faulty air fuel mixture sensor, dirty or clogged fuel injectors, the throttle body or a growing problem with a crankshaft position sensor.

In order to determine exactly what’s damaged, I recommend having a certified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, come to your location to complete an inspection to determine why the car is hard to start.
