Car not starting
I originally posted this in the wrong section.
I have a 2006 2.3L w/ 91k miles. About 2 weeks ago I tried to start my car and I could hear the starter turning but the engine wouldn't start. I turned key to off and tried again and it started no problem. Ever since then the first time I try to start the car it won't kick on but the second time it always comes on. If I make a short stop and engine is still hot when I try to start it, it usually starts no problem. Sometimes on second effort to start it, it chugs a bit, struggling, but then reaches idle and sounds normal. I had battery and alternator tested and both checked good.
If it was starter, I'd think it would happen all the time or more randomly than every time I try a cold start. Possibly fuel pump losing prime? Any ideas?
