My car has been starting cold, but when I stop and the engine is warm it struggles to start. I have looked at the crank sensor, the plug and wires were covered in oil from a leak somewhere. Could that be the problem? And will it be okay if I just clean the oil off.
Do you
have the same problem?

Clean off the wires and scan for codes. Check the fuel pressure with a gauge most auto parts stores rent it.

Thanks for the reply. Now I am stuck with a tripped immobilizer nothing at all, no cranking the key is not recognized. Will my spare key work (not fob)?

The spare may work if not try resetting it, if no manual look online for your car to reset
