2000 Honda Civic EX Cranks but won't start randomly

Asked by Jun 22, 2017 at 01:31 PM about the 2000 Honda Civic EX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hello, for the last 3-4 months or so my 2000 Honda Civic EX has been
having trouble periodically where I turn the key and the engine cranks, but it
won't start. The car does this for between 5-15 minutes and then it will fire up
randomly. It started once every 2 weeks but has been increasing in
frequency to about 2x per week at this point. I've had the spark plugs and the
fuel pump checked, and the mechanic told me that it could possibly be due
to "Using Arco gasoline instead of higher end gasoline". Does this sound
correct? Are there any other things that could be wrong with the car? Thanks
in advance!
