Q: Vehicle hard to start

asked by on

It is hard to start my vehicle.

There can be quite a few reasons why you are experiencing a hard start condition in your Honda Civic. This can range from a weak fuel pump, dirty idle air control valve, a failing fuel pressure regulator or perhaps it may be time to have your valves adjusted. With the information provided being limited, I would recommend enlisting the assistance of a certified mechanic to come by and inspect your Honda Civic. They will have the experience to quickly identify the source of your hard start condition and make the repairs needed to get your Honda starting quickly and easily every time.
