For the past couple weeks my car has been giving me a problem starting up. I'll turn the key and and it chokes for like 3 seconds or so and then starts up. I've had my car 2 months and this has been happening to me for about a week now. It only happens when it's off for a short period of time and then when i got to start it up it'll do it. Yesterday it happened to me like 3 times. Anyone else having this same problem?

Not me..what kind of gas do you use, do you generally fill up at a busy gas station or a slow one? Could have gotten some crapy/dirty gas, have you filled up since this has started??

The station was getting a fuel delivery that day was it? That will kick all the debris and moisture up which then gets pumped in your tank, never fill up when the station is getting filled. Mine has done it and I think it was bad gas

mine does the same thing. It is extremely intermittent so have hesitated bringing it into the dealer...i have asked around and been told maybe a starter, alternator, battery or solenoid??

If i turn the key i get like a chugging noise for three seconds, let off, try again and all is good. Happens like 1 out of 50 starts, with or without a/c on.

If you get more info please post and i will the same
