Hi,

In the mornings, my 2000 toyota camry hesitates starting up. Its not a significant problem at all (yet at least). Usually it hesitates the first time and starts by the second time. Occasionally (1 out of 7 times or so) it will start but then immediately stop. Then upon a second try it will start, albeit still hesitantly.

So far this is only a problem in the morning when I first start it. I live in LA, so its never really that cold. (However I leave for work early and its usually 45-50 degrees outside - cold for LA standards) Also, My car is parked outside on the street and usually slanted to the right or left towards the curb depending on where I find a spot -- so maybe that has something to do with it?

Regardless, this just started happening and I'm hoping that all it needs is a fuel-injector cleaner. All other times, it starts no problem.

Thanks much!

That could be the case, I think a simple tune up will clear it up. Clean the throttle body, change the air filter, fuel filter, also try to park the vehicle at level or pointing downhill, not poining up hill, unless its a full tank of gas, if you keep a quarter tank, you may have that little hesitation, becuase it needs to build pressure first. Any ways I wouldnt be alarmed of this situation
