So my 2001 Honda Accord (107k miles) is having starting issues as of yesterday. I thought the battery was dead but when someone tried to jump me it struggled. Then I had to give it some gas to start it. Ever since then it has been struggling to start and I have to rev it if it’s been sitting. Some things to note:
When I got an oil change a few weeks ago they said the battery life wasn’t great.
I’ve never had any starting issues in the past.
The battery doesn’t seem to be dead, all the power comes on but it just clicks when I try to turn it over.
It was 100 degrees (Heatwave here in LA) on the day that this first starting happening. I don’t know if that means anything.
I’m just wondering What my next steps should be? Does it seem like the starter or the fuel injector? Is there a way for a mechanic to know immediately which it is or is it a “Lets replace this to see” kind of issue? Are there any “over the counter” things I can try to see? Like a fuel injector cleaner or something?
Just wondering what it could be.
