Car turns over but won't start. If I try again a few times eventually it starts.

Asked by May 25, 2017 at 01:35 PM about the 1992 Ford Tempo 4 Dr GL Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Just started a few days ago. I have to keep turning it over and it will eventually start. Starter engages the first few times but car just dies. It will start after doing this a few times.

1 Answer

Well took it in and finally found out what was causing the problem. It was the ignition starter switch. Now it starts right up no problem, and didn't cost a fortune to have replaced.
