Your Questions Answered By Our Experts

My car often doesn't start when I first turn the key in the morning. Why?

It depends on what type of car you have. If you have a carbureted engine, the problem is probably with your choke. The choke regulates the amount of air that enters the engine, and when it's cold out, the engine needs more air to start. If the choke is stuck or not working properly, it can prevent the engine from starting. If you have a fuel-injected engine, the problem could be with the fuel system. Fuel injectors deliver fuel to the engine, and if they're clogged or not working properly, the engine won't start. Another possibility is that the battery is weak. When it's cold out, batteries tend to lose power, so if yours is weak, to begin with, it might not have enough power to start the engine. If your car still doesn't start, it could be a number of other things, including a problem with the spark plugs, the starter, or the alternator. If you're not sure what the problem is, take it to a mechanic and have it checked out.
