Hi, about 2 months a go it started struggling to start. After 2-3 turns of the key it would start, or if I put my foot on the gas that would usually get it going. I drove it like this for a month before deciding to get this issue fixed. When the mechanics looked at it/tested it, they put the key in and turned it multiple times aggressively/over and over again, after that the car wouldn't start. So they thought it was the fuel pump. They replaced it and my car started without issues for about 2 days then slowly started to struggle to start again. So pretty much i'm back to square one.
Do you

Hi,

I want you to try something.

1)Turn the key from off to the run position (engine off) and count to 5.
2) Turn the key off and repeat step 1 two more times.
3) See if the vehicle starts easily.

I'm asking this to see if it is a fuel pressure drop that is causing the hard start. There are other things that can do it, but lets try this first.

Let me know.
