11 Plate A3 Struggling to start - 4 times today!
I was going to uni today, and I went to start it up this morning and it took about three times longer to start! I thought it was probably down to the cold weather - As it's been taking ever so slightly longer to start recent! As im heading to the motorway junction (about 2 miles away) the engine hasn't warmed up yet the start/stop kicked in at a set of lights. I came to put the clutch back down and it didn't start? I then kept it down for about 5 seconds - then it fired up!?
As I was coming back (Again on a cold engine), the car turned over slightly, and started on the second attempt? I then got a few miles down the road and the start/stop kicked in again - and it took about five seconds to fire up - I was just stranded at the lights not setting off!
It's done 7,500 miles and the cars 8 months old - Does this just sound like cold weather or is there an actual problem?
