Any mechanics/mechanically minded people here?
I have a strange problem.
I very rarely use my car, usually just once a week to go to rehearsal on a Sunday morning. I can go out and start my car, it's a teeny bit sluggish but it'll start no problem. If I then stop for a short spell (i.e getting petrol or popping into a shop), I can't start it again. It'll behave like a flat battery, cranking very slowly. (the gauges also do a full sweep before returning to their regular positions), but if I let it sit for a bit, 5 mins or so, it'll start.
I've had the car for over 7 years and it's never had a replacement battery, Not sure if I should fit a new one or not.
A trawl on the web has the fault down to anything from a duff battery, Idle Air Control valve, injectors. coil.... So any advise from knowledgable people would be a help.
