My car has an automatic transmission.

Unfortunately, we do not have enough information to diagnose your vehicle. It could be fuel related, ignition related, a computer failure, etc. A diagnostic scan may reveal the system that needs further testing. I suggest having a certified technician, like one from YourMechanic.com, inspect the vehicle to determine the cause of your starting concern.
