My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there:

At first glance, I’d agree with you spark plugs or fuel injectors are the cause. However, with modern vehicles, the issue tends to be a sensor such as the crankshaft position sensor or other ignition system monitoring device that causes this problem To diagnose this problem, you might want to have a mobile mechanic complete a car is hard to start inspection.
