I have a 2004 GA GT and most of the time it will start right up, but sometimes it doesnt want to turn catch and run and ill have to turn the key twice or hold it on. im not sure whats the deal, but my cousin has one too and they said once in a while it does it to them too. is this a common problem?

Have you checked your starter?
How's the battery?

Does it just crank over n dies immediately, or does it not start at all?

yea man, we need a little more info, is it dead, or is there starter noise? do you ever mess with the gas pedal while trying this, does it happen with the motor warmed up, or when it's cold?

Pretty sure hes saying it doesnt fire up as fast as it used to. Old fuel filter or dirty injectors and/or plugs or wires going south are the usual culprits.

^^ Thats true. Also it could be the starter going bad?

If I'm understanding correctly you should just replace the starter.

well, after running 2 tanks of premium and Seafoam through it, it doesnt do it any more. must have just been dirty injectors. haha sorry for the no replying until now. kinda forgot i posted this :P
