Hey guys, im sure this has been answered many times on the forums but im not really sure where to start. My car runs excellent, i just replaced the cat, fuel pump, and radiator fan recently and its running amazing.

THe only problem is that I need to try and start it like two to three times everytime before it ignites and starts up (that sounds confusing lol iono why). Once the car is running i just got to let it warm up for a couple minutes and im golden. Could this be the starter? I dont think its the battery or the alternator because its maintaing a charge and everything. I have already checked the cables on the battery and they are r solid.

Could someone throw me some advice, thanks.

Yep, I would check the CSI (Cold Start Injector) system first and see if everything is happy there. You have the injector itself below the TB (Throttle Body) and the coolant timing switch which is the brown one next to the green one above the water neck (thermostat housing).

So you're saying that nothing happens when you turn the key the first couple of times? The engine doesn't turn over it just sits there dead not turning?

i think he means that it cranks a 2-3 times before turning over.....
