Thank you all. I will ask my shop to preform a fuel pressure hold time test on the vehicle to see if there are any leaks in the system.
I looked up symptoms for a faulty range switch in the transmission, and my car doesn’t appear to have many of the associated problems.
We preform regular maintenance on the car, and a check engine sign has never appeared. Also, the car only has 59,000 miles so we never changed the sparked plugs because they are typically changed after 100,000 miles. Also, wouldn’t the spark plugs show mal effects during driving of the car, such as: slow acceleration, uneven acceleration, and bucking? None of those things happen when I drive. It only seems to happen during starts.
Also, I was wondering if the problem was temperature induced, would the ambient temperature, hot or cold, cause the problems to magnify.
I’m trying to think for some of pattern to this, but as of now, I have found none. In addition, to testing the fuel system is there a sensor that will cause these intermittent effects. It seems very interesting to me that the car drives fine but only has problems during starts.
Thank you all so much for your thoughts and suggestions!
