I have a 2007 Nissan Murano that about once a week needs about 4 turns of the key to start. The car has about 80,000 miles, is regularly serviced and does not have the check engine light on. The problem only seems to occur when the engine is hot. I took the car to the dealer who, for $200 plus labor, offered to hook the car up to their machine but told me he didn’t think it would isolate the problem unless the car failed to start when it was hooked-up to the machine.
OK, my questions: would it be worth buying a scanner like (http://www.actron.com/product_detail.php?pid=16362) and leaving it connected to the car to record what happens when it fails to start and would I be able to store that information to show to the mechanic?
