Starting problem

Sometimes, the engine will not start from the first time. The starter is ok but the engine is not fired. I have to turn the key back to position "0" & restart again. Any thoughts or ideas?

Hard to say Rashid. It could also be a fuel delivery problem.

The problem is still available & I have realized that there is flash but does not continue. I have to turn the key back to position 0 & restart again.

Any one has experienced this problem before.

Check the spark plugs too. Maybe they need to be cleaned or replaced.

I am suspecting the self starter on its way out but I need support.

What are the symptoms of faulty self starter?
