    Ive got a 96 accord lx sedan w/ 134k on it and some times if the car as been sitting over night it will not turn over the first time i turn the key. Then if i let off the clutch and push it down again and turn the key again it starts just fine and runs fine. Any idea what the problem could be?

    Bad injector o-rings? Could be losing fuel pressure over night. My car does this, takes maybe 3-4 hours and sometimes it won't start on the first crank. Although it could be a number of things, fuel delivery being the most likely problem.

    Probably a bad neutral safety switch.

    Any way to test my current one? This problem only happens when the engine is stone cold (Sitting over night). Before I changed the neutral safety switch the starter to turn over really slow, now it just doesnt turn over the first couple times i try to start it then it starts and runs perfectly.

    Does it click at all when you first try to start the car?
