If anyone here is gear head I could really use some advise now. My 1991 Chevy Corsica 3.1 Liter FI has some problems starting. This started in the winter (I live in northern Indiana) and has continued to be a problem even on warmer days. What happens is if I don't get the car to start with the first attempt, it will not start for several hours. If I get it started, it runs fine, and starts easily anytime after I have had it running. If it isn't started at least every 12 hours I run into problems. The strange thing to me is if it doesn't start I know it isn't going to after the first attempt to start it, because after that it simply will not start. When I crank it over it sputters (the first time heavily) and just when I think it is about to start I may let off the ignition (which I shouldn't do given the circumstances). I have to crank it longer than normal, what seems like 5 seconds to get it to start most times. Basically I have to crank it passed it being actually started, which I know is bad on my starter gears, or else I have little hope of actually getting it going. Things I have checked... The battery, it is cranking fine Gas, I have plenty And I am going to check the oil. If anyone has any advise or pointers I would be very thankful for any input. Also let me know if I need to go into more detail about something so I can help you to diagnose the problem better (but I warn you, I don't know much about cars, obviously). I can't afford a major problem, so I hope the problem isn't major. This problem couldn't have come at a worse time during my job search. I am in a really tough spot at the moment. Thanks in advance.
