When I go to start it, it cranks and then finally starts. Why is it doing this?

Asked by Jun 15, 2015 at 09:11 PM about the 2007 Kia Rondo LX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2007 Rondo 4 cylinder LX and this has just started happening. My car has always started right up with no excessive cranking. Now it is happening more often that I have to crank it until it finally starts. I had the battery and alternator tested and they tested fine. What can this be?

Check air filter and have throttle body cleaned with throttle body spray have fuel filter changed it have not done so in a while also add fuel injector cleaner to gas tank

I found with my 2009 Rondo that taking the key out and turn it over before putting back in the ignition will do the trick. I was told that the cylinders are not lining up properly.Also see if using the spare key helps.
