Writing about my car. 2001 Kia optima.
I live in Pittsburgh PA. And my daughter lives in Sandusky Ohio. When I go on trips to see her and
I stop one time to fill the my gas tank and rest for a short time.
Once I am there I park my car and dont drive it for 2 or 3 days.
When I get ready to make the trip back home, I have a hard time starting my car. It wants to start when I turn the key, but won't. And I have full power, lights, ect.
Eventually after a million tries, it finally starts, but it will hop, spit and sputters. When that subsides, it is okay.
I turn it off, wait a few minutes, then it starts fine.
I bought the car 5 years ago, I drive it everyday for work, which is local, (5 miles), and normal use for shopping ect. My driving daily is never over 20 miles per shopping trip. I never have this problem on a daily basis, it is just my long trips. Any idea what the problem could be?
No one can seem to give me an answer.
have the same problem?
