  • Q:

    Why is my car hard to start?

    A:

    If a car is hard to start, the issue is often the battery. While a dead battery does not turn the starter at all, a weak one turns it very slowly. This slow turn does not create enough compression to cause the fuel to ignite in the cylinders, making it difficult to start the vehicle.
