My car used to start really fast as soon as I turened the key but now its really slow to start cranks good and strong I have to pump the gas while turning over the key and it takes anywhere from 3 to 4 seconds to start and some times it starts fine. Once its started it runs perfect no miss in the engine or anything I've changed plugs and wires stil same thing I replaced the fuel pump 2 years ago when I got the car sometimes if I start it and drive a short distance like a few blocks and shut it off go in a store come out and try to start it up it will just crank and crank like its not getting fuel and I have to spray a shot of starter fluid in it just to get it to start but once started it runs fine what could it be. Also while the car is runnig there is a round thing with a few vaccum lines going to it located on the passengr side by the fire wall that makes a constant clicking sound that it didn't make before the thing has a little spring and valve I gues u wuld say and it sets inside of that round vaccum box right over a hole thaf sucks air and that's what makes the clicking noise.I know this because one day my car was idleing way to high and I noticed a hissing sound under the hood it was the top of that round vaccum box had popped loose and I had to snap it back together the car idles fine now but still hear clicking not sure if that has anything to do with my car being rough to start
have the same problem?
