1999 sunfire starts hard. Could it be out of time
My 1999 pontiac sunfire is starting
hard. The starter was replaced n it
works just fine but now it acts like the
battery is dead then after I let fuel
pump kick on it starts really hard.
No noise once started or while
Could it be slightly out of time???????
I cant afford to take to a certified
I live pay check to pay check
May just need some plug,s and maybe air filter,fuel filter,change,if it were out of time you would notice lost power when driving.
Hey T_S_T you are right that you would lose power when driving but that is if it timing was to far advanced if timing is ( I can not think of the word I am looking for to explain when timing is to far back ) but that would cause hard starting.
Firebird338,the word is tarded,meaning behind time,you are right,but i think i would check the simple things first,to rule them out,then go for the timeing.
I guess its about what they mean by hard starting. If they mean that it hesitates a few times in between trying to start
It may be the timing but if hard starting means turning over for a period of time before starting that is a different story.
