2004 Mazda Mazda3 Q&A

2004 Mazda Mazda3 Question: Car does not start on first try. Wait a couple seconds and starts on 2nd try.

The car will just crank and crank but not turn over. Doesn't matter hot or cold weather. After the initial crank, if I wait 3 or 4 seconds, then it will start immediately on the 2nd attempt. If I recrank immediately (before waiting 3 seconds), it won't start the 2nd time either. Sometimes, if I crank the first time continuously for about 5 seconds, it will work, but just barely. Any ideas? -
Answer 1
scan test for codes and check your fuel pressure when trying to start it -
Answer 2
Sounds like fuel pressure or maybe a leaking injector. Bring it by Dublin Auto Repair and they can hook a gauge up to her to determine what's going on. -
Answer 3
Maybe the car has fuel in it -
