Engine Mechanical problem
2004 Chevy Optra 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 70,000 miles
Hi, I've a Chevy Optra 1.6 with a strange starting problem. In the mornings I've to try couple of times to get the engine running. It always cranks but starts only after 4-5 tries of long cranking. Once started, it will run smoothly and this problem goes away. If the vehicle 'cools off' for couple of hours it will show the same problem. I got the ECM checked and the technician advised me to change the fuel pump, but the problem remains. So far I've changed the plugs, fuel filter and added injector cleaner to fuel but nothing helped. Now he is suggesting that the timing belt 'may' be the problem! Is he ripping me off? Is there something else I need to check. Now the ECM hasn't registered any errors. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
have the same problem?
