Car has low mileage-27,000, water pump & timing belt replaced in 2007. Plugs replaced-one had a rusty plug. Not overheating. Once its started in the morning-takes a while- it runs all day with no problem starting again. Its only the mornings it doesnt like to start. You can hear the fuel pump come on when you turn the key to start. What can be the problem or what can I check to see what the problem could be?

Hello manny71

When the problem occurs in the morning, check the battery state of charge.
A small parasitic drain during the night cause by a sticking relay, a module that is not shutting down when it should or a shorted diode in the alternator or the battery can't old charge anymore.
12.68v.......... 100%
12.45v.......... 75%
12.24v.......... 50%
12.06v.......... 25%
11.89v.......... 0%
you need from 75% and up.
