Car has trouble starting every once in a while


Asked by Oct 16, 2015 at 01:50 PM about the 2008 Saturn VUE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

For like the past 6 months my car has had trouble starting every so often.  
At one point I checked the battery and it checked out OK.  Yet every so
often it will have a long start.  Right now it is about 1-2 times a week a start is
long.  Sounds like the starter turns it over just fine, but it acts like it isn't
combusting right away or like only 1 cylinder fires and the others struggle to
combust?  It is so strange and for the majority of the time it fires up great!  
Ever run into something like this?  It is 3.6L V6.
