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...
