2003 Honda Element Automatic

When I try to turn the car on, it cranks and makes the noise like its going to start, just doesnt turn over. If I press the gas a little when I try starting, it will usually start. I just replaced the battery last week. What else could it be?

Do you
have the same problem?

:) im a girl, with no guy in my life. Is this something you think I can do on my own? If so, how would I go about doing it?

It could be a bad IAC valve.
