    Sporadic Ignition Problems

    Recently my car just turns over but will not start, I leave it for some time then It starts up right away. It is not a fuel problem, but I suspect some sort of atmostpheric problem since this problem only occurs when the outside temperature is over 18C or as today when it was raining 14C! The garage has already replaced the plugs and some other unit, but still the same problem. Antbody have a similar problem or has any ideas what it could be?

    I had a similar problem. Turned out to be the battery. How old is your battery - mine was changed at 3 years.

    Battery is fine, turned out to be a loose wire from the fuel sending unit.
