Hesitates At Start Up

Recommended Posts

Hi i have noticed that sometimes when i start the car it turns over then it sort of stops/hesitates and then fires up

could this be a timing issue? If so then it could explain my crappy MPG issue

S reg Avensis 18.GS

Worth checking your Battery (or getting someone to check it for you). Spark ingition engines need a strong spark to fire up - especially from cold. If your Battery is struggling to turn the engine over - hence the hesitation - then it will be struggling to produce a strong spark. If you can get a friend to lend you their Battery for a short while, simply swap them over and see what difference it makes. If the problem goes away then its your Battery.
