I'll show you a simple way to use the expert mechanics steps to determine how to find an end your hard starting engine problem.
Is it a electrical problem?
If your battery is more than 4 years old, it may not be any good. Most mechanics and parts stores have a device that can check a discharged battery and tell if its good or not. It may just need a charge - they can provide it, for you.
Jumper cables from a good battery to yours can start your car, even if your battery is no good. This will get you to a store for a new battery - but keep the motor running until you get to the store, as the battery may not start your motor again.
Started check. The started is a powerful little motor. After 100,000 miles enough dirt and wear on its contacts will cause several no-start problems. It chatters trying to start, and you know the battery is good. The Key is in the cranking start position, but you hear nothing or a growl or a click. Or the motor spins with difficulty indicating the started is lazy or tired. All a sign the started needs replacement.
Alternator check. Once cranking to start the motor ends and the motor starts up, the alternator will put out extra voltage for a minute or two - if its good.
By noticing if the dash and headlights go brighter for a minute and then dim slightly - if so - the alternator is OK.
If the battery goes dead overnight but is good all day long its Diode problems. - These are 6 one way switches inside the alternator. When bad diodes can drain the battery of all its current - causing your dead battery. Replace alternator if bad. The same testing device that checks battery can also check the alternator to see if the diodes or another part in it is bad.
Some of these conditions will trigger a dash lite and a code to tell the problem area for you or the mechanic.
Those are the 3 steps to check for the source of your hard starting engine problem.
