    Could be a number of things. Have you modified the car at all? What model year is it? Has ANYTHING been done to the car recently?

    It turns on for about 2 seconds, then shuts off. I then can try over and over again and the car will continue doing this about 8 times. Of course i give it a couple minutes in between. Then finally it will turn on.(over).

    I think it's the fuel filter...I'm going to at least try that first. NO check engine light.

    I merged the threads. No need for seperate threads on the same issue.

    I too would look at the fuel filter.
