1 Answer


If I understand correctly, your car has difficulty starting after it has been sitting for a while in the driveway? Does the car has problem starting everytime it's cold or only if it's been a while? I would verify the fuel line. It could be the line itself or the fuel checkvalve. To verify that it's the fuel line pressure, you can turn the key until you hear the fuel pump hissing, let it finish, remove the key. Repeat 3 times. The car should start more easily. Good luck!
