my gfs car is doing the same. we replace started and gave it a tune up. still does it it also jerks some times under load. think some sensor or something in the fuel system. ran fuel injector cleaner in it work fine then did it again dont know the problem. My '96 does the same thing, especially when it's cold. I'll crank and crank and usually after a bit, it will start. However, if I put the gas pedal all the way to the floor, it will start right away. It starts great when the engine is warm. When I bought the car, the check engine light would come on now and then. I ran a couple of cans of HEET through the system, as well as a couple of bottles of injector cleaner. That cured the engine light problem, but not the hard starting problem. I had my mechanic put the code reader on the car's computer. She said that the code it displayed translated to "an air/fuel mixture" problem. One of these days, I'll get it down to the diagnostic center to find out exactly what's going on. By the way, I often have a strong gasoline odor in the cabin. This worries my mechanic.
UPDATE: I've since replaced two leaky fuel injectors. This solved my hard starting problem as well as the gasoline odor.

In order to wire the starter on a Pontiac Sunfire, you will need a jack, jack stand, socket set, and a torque wrench. You will need to make sure to remove the battery cables from the battery.

The strategy of working backwards entails starting with the end results and reversing the steps you need to get those results, in order to figure out the answer to the problem. =D

I'm having the same problem...it will only play one song or sometimes all the songs in alphabetical order!

I'd pick up a Haynes or Chilton manual for the car. It will have those torque specs.

Standing in front looking at the engine the cylinders are numbered starting from the passenger side, 1, 2, 3, 4. The firing order is 1, 3, 4, 2. You have 2 coils mounted together, first one from the left is wired for cylinder 4 and 1. Second one is wired for cylinder 3 and 2.

In order to change the signal light, you need to look under the bumper. There are 5 to 6 bolts that need to be removed in order to remove the cover.รŠ

You need to list the problem in order to even expect an answer.
