Slow to start


Recommended Posts

I have a MY00 and the full 60k service was proformed less then 3k ago, but it seems to take longer and longer to start lately.

about 9k miles ago the car started very quickly now it takes 2-3 seconds. Any ideas, I would love to take care of this problem before it got worse. Could it be beacause of E85, or poor gas ( I always use +92 oct.)

Thanks

Does it crank longer then before or does it seem to be cranking over slower before it flashes up??

The battery was replaced in April. The car lights up fine, cranks for a few seconds and off I go. I am going to put some fuel cleaner through this weekend. ( which one is the best to use?) And I will let you know if that makes any diff. Any other thoughts

Thanks

Oh and there seems to be a soft and quiet grinding/rubbing out of my right rear brakes. Should I get the rotors turned?

I replaced an ignition switch about 4 months ago after the key was locking ...everything went well. However now I am getting a delayed start...turn the key 4-5 times and it starts...This morning - NO GO!...any ideas???!!!

are you sure the clutch pedal was fully depressed? did you hear the clutch switch 'click'? every once in a while this happens to me, and either i don't push the clutch pedal all the way down or the carpet is in the way.

i think the general consensus here is not to get the rotors turned. have the rotors measured to see if you are at minimum thickness (rotors are done when they have 2mm wear). also check your pads to see if they need to be replaced. it could be that there is a small rock wedged between the pad and rotor (although this usually produces a terrible noise similar to the screams of the Nazgul in Lord of the Rings!) :lol:

try getting up to speed, then slamming on your brakes. do it in reverse too. then see if you still get the noise.
