My corolla will turn over but start. I havent been able to notice a pattern of what would make it happen. It has 240th miles on it but when it starts it runs and sounds great. It happens maybe 3-5 times a week and sometimes I can wait a few hours and it may or may not start up. Does anyone know what could be causing this? is it something someone who knows little about cars could fix with good instructions?
