    What about first thing in the morning? Have you managed to check the fuel pressure during this time? Sounds like the pressure may be low. What year is your car? Also, when it starts, does it idle and run OK?

    In the mourning it starts up just fine but I have noticed that the rpms drop real low before jumping back up to normal. I have no idea on how to check the fuel pressure. If you have any hints let me know and I will check. But it is an 06 with almost 8000 miles on it so it is freaking me out a bit. I had a wrx before this with no problems what so ever. I just hope this is a simple fix.

    oh and thanks for the quick reply

    Take it to the dealer and use the warranty. If it starts fine when the engine's cold but not when it's warm you might have a weak cell in the battery.

    Thats a great idea but I have to take every thing off of it first. I was hoping it might be something that I can fix. But ya I think its going in to the dealership.



    Even when it wont start Im still glad I bought it.

    Sounds like a fuel issue. Batteries usually don't do that. They'll either slow crank or no crank. But deffinatly take off anything obvious or it WILL void warranty. Or maybe call first and just ask hypothetical questions about what is allowed under warranty.

    Sorry but me again. To check fuel pressure, the easiest way if you have access to a shop's tools is to use a fuel pressure tester. Hook it up anywhere in fuel line so as to recirculate through gauge and back to car. If so, check pressure when starting and running. Check fuel press. specs as well.
