When starting my car, it sometimes doesn't start. It turns over so it is not the battery. If I give it about 10 seconds and try to start it again, it starts! What is the issue?

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a new battery and it is fine and so is the alternator.  Anyone know anything about this?  Please help!  Thank you!

Check air filter and clean throttle body replace fuel filter if have not done so in a while add fuel injector cleaner to gas tank and use the middle grade or high test gas to help clean out the gum and carbon build up.

Do you think it could be an electric issue or the starter even?

Vehicle is cranking over so its not that starter and far as electric it does start eventually so it's more like the fuel injectors are dirty or clogged air filter trying to suck air through the dirty filter or partially clogged fuel filter trying to force fuel through the filter.
