Starting trouble

Recommended Posts

Maruti 800 2004 make.

Starts alright on cold engine. But does not start when engine is hot. Even if it stalls after 2 mins from starting, it fails to start. Needs cranking 5 to 10 times after some time (5 to 10 mins) is allowed to cool it down.


Guess this is fairly common problem. Any ideas on that? Thanks,

I think the actual connectors were loose on the wires that connect to the battery. If this is what's going on, you can get around it by holding the pedal down a little ways while starting, and then a few seconds more until it hits its stride.
