    I haven't been too hard on my new car. Anyway Over the past 2 weeks the car has been requiring a few seconds with key the key in the start position to until it finally starts. Normally it was maybe about 1.5 seconds in the start position, now it is around 3-4 seconds. I believe this is only happening when the car has been sitting for a few hours.
    I changed the oil and filter. Changed the air cleaner. I only put 93 as well. I guess my next step would be to change the spark plugs. if that doesn't do it I will change the fuel filter. Anyone else have any ideas as to what else would be causing this problem?

    EDIT.. Just checking this.. For the plugs I am looking on www.ngk.com and it says the OEM plugs are "NGK Double Platinum 3271 PZFR6F-11 0.044 "Original Equipment Manufacture and/or Original Equipment Service part." $11.71"

    Kinda pricey I think

    New car? Trouble starting? Take it back to the dealer. It's probably under warranty, and won't cost you anything.
