    Default Corolla doesn't start on first self

    Solution
    My corolla does not start on first self, hot or cold does not matter. Once started, if I shut it off and start again right away, it starts on first self. If I shut off and then try to start after some time like 30 minutes, it takes 2-3 selfs. Can any body guess what could be wrong??? No mechanic or electrician could diagnose it yet!!! Done tuning many times, no effect. Self is fine, takes very strong self when I give it a turn!!!

    How much your car is driven and when was the last time you changed the fuel filter?

    Do you have a tracker.?
    Do you have any security system installed?

    Maybe they are interfering with the electronics.

    Try 2 things.

    1. When turning off your car rev your car.
    2. Before starting bring your key to the position where lights on your meter turn on. Then bring it to off position. Do this 2-3 times and then start the car.

    These things may (or may not) help

    @zee_dad_khan - This is to test your fuel pump pressure. Your car has an electric fuel pump, when you bring the key to the 'on' position, the fuel pump is activated and the fuel sent to the fuel injectors.

    Leave the key in 'on' position for about 4-5 seconds and try to start. If you see it starting correctly using this procedure then the issue is with your fueling system.

    Have your mechanic check the fuel pressure before and after the fuel filter. If the fuel pressure is low before the fuel filter, then you likely have a bad fuel pump. If it is low ONLY after the fuel filter, replace your fuel filter. If the fuel pressure is fine on both ends, have your injectors cleaned and tested.

    O bhai fuel filter change kar lo.
    It's not typical corolla thing. I have been driving three generations of corolla from past 15 years. Never faced anything like this.
    Don't change fuel assembly. Change your filter only.

    Those who were recommending Fuel filter change were right!

    Thanks you all for your valuable input.

    I kept a Corolla 9th Gen from 2005-2015. Not even for single time it took more than half a self every to start and the 10th Gen from 2015 till 21 July also, it just needed half a click.
    Be polite on the road. Always give way to others, particularly ambulances and pedestrians.
