Hi,

I've recently purchased a 2008 Saab 9-3. I've noticed that the first time I start it everyday, it's very slow to actually start. It cranks several times and almost seems like it's going to fail. This hasn't actually happened in the short time i've owned it. What is odd though is that after the car has been driven around a bit, it's starts fine. It's likely it's been sat quite dormant for a while before I obtained it due to something called the coronavirus? Anyways, I'm wondering if anyone might have an idea of what the issues is.

Thanks,

Dan

Yaa, i would do that, and fuel pressure test too (to check if it primes quick and keeps the pressure as well)
