Slow start in hot weather and will not take off after stopping at a traffic light.

Asked by Jul 01, 2016 at 10:39 AM about the 2006 Nissan Sentra 1.8 S

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I currently have 2 things I need to diagnose
and repair on my '06, 1.8 S Nissan Sentra.
1. In hot weather it takes 2-6 tries to start. In
cold/cool weather or even in the shade, it
starts fine; but I can't always park in a
shaded area.
2. Sometimes after waiting at a traffic light
the car will not move when I press the gas to
go. (Then of course people start honking
their horns for me to go.  Sweet aren't
they?!)

I have heard this vehicle has issues with
starting in hot weather. Does anyone on here
know what the problem(s) could be and how
to repair?

Thanks...

One of the simplest and most logical items to check is your fuel filter.
