    Sometimes difficult to start?

    Hi,

    My daughter has a 1993 2.0 l sport, sometimes it is difficult to start. Not always just every now and then, it cranks over sounds like it is trying to start, you can smell fuel. Then after a few goes it starts and runs fine . The idle never has been super smooth.

    Any ideas, ignition coil?

    cheers
    Tony

    Ignition switch is most likely the culprit.

    Coolant temp sensor. Replace it. The car is over fuelling because it cannot accurately read the temperature, so it pumps in more fuel and floods the engine causing it to not start.
