Troubled Start

For some reason, i have trouble starting my car sometimes throughout the day. I mean every time is starts but it seems like the car is struggling to start. Is there anything i can buy to reduce troubled starts?

Re: Troubled Start

Check your plugs, see how they look.
Make sure plug wires are seated firmly.

When was the fuel filter changed last?

Re: Troubled Start

If it's doing it mainly when the car is hot (i.e. you drive around for a while, cut it off for a few minutes or so, and then try to crank it again), it's a good sign that your starter is suffering from heat soak and is on its way out.
