    Default Honda City 2008 problem in starting the car

    AslomAlukm everyone
    I have Honda City 2008 iDSI. i have noticed a problem in it while starting it in morning.
    Previously when i insert ket in it and just rotate it the car get started. but now i have to keep the key rotated for atleast 5 sec to start the car. but later in the day i dont have to do this , just a push and car get started.
    is it due to severe cold or there is some problem in engine??? till last week i haven't faced such problem in my car regardless of how much sever the weather get.
    thank you for your consideration. looking fwd for some healthy advice.

    have you ever changed the fuel filter?
    if not, fuel filter might be clogging
    a clogged fuel filter then kills the fuel pump

    been through this already

    You will never believe that till last month my car was starting on just a hint of first sulf.

But since now i am facing this problem wt u suggest should i change spark plug first to get rid of that starting problem? How much does spark plug costs and can you please good place in rwp isb where i can do that

    Spark Plugs
    Fuel Filter
    Air Filter
    Thats it.
    If you are using CNG than kit service ansd Throttle body cleaning else not necessary.
    Read the manual available in Honda City thread on Pakwheels.

    U dont need to run your car on HOBC wholly fully. It will run fine on regular as well. If you are the first owner than fuel pump and filter be changed at 80000km mileage. If you are not than one should at least change the fuel filter.
