replaced the fuel dampener/damper on both sides. Make sure that you replace (and lubricate) the orings when you replace them. And don't over torque the bolts when you put it back on or you will strip the bolts out...

What my car basically does is that it takes a few seconds for it to start. It is usually during cold weather that it takes a while to turn on. Some of the times it wont even make a clicking noise. When it struggles to turn on, it keeps clicking and clicking.
