Engine Performance problem
1998 Dodge Avenger 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 130000 miles
I just bought this car, but was never told about this problem. If I run this car every day, it will start fine the next day, but if I wait to start it after 2 days, it takes about a minute to five minutes before it putters to a start. I replaced the fuel filter, and noticed an increase in power, but that was all. The battery is good and the spark plugs are new. The spark plug lines are also new. I had it checked out by a mechanic and he asked me to have the fuel pump run a couple of times before I start it after it was sitting for a while. I waited two days and did this and it started fine. Problem solved! - Not yet. I replaced the fuel pump and today, about a week later, I had the same problem.
