Dodge nitro will not start sometimes I can drive for a few days no problem the bang it will take a bit to get it started if lock the doors then unlock the the door then no problem it will start
Sometimes the starter wont work. Sometimes the engine will start and run for a few seconds and die. Sometimes it wont start at all. Seems to be worse in high heat
