When I start the car for the first time, it starts then shuts off right away. But attempting to start it immediately again it starts without a problem. This only will happen again if the car has been sitting over a extended period of time within the same day. I've also noticed that on a hot and humid day it sometimes starts right up no problem.:confused??

I have seen this problem posted many times. Have you tried performing a search?

Thanks CMuc, a search came up with the coolant temperature sensor as a possible culprit. Funny as it may be I am waiting for the delivery of the one I ordered. It also seems to be running alittle rich, again it states that the coolant temperature sensor most likely is the culprit. Once again this is a great forum.
