Recently my car has had trouble starting, well sometimes it turns on and sometimes it doesn't and i have to either wait a few minutes or sometimes it won't even turn on anymore. I changed the starter and even got a new battery as the problem continued. I had the vehicle checked out by a mechanic twice but it just so happened that each time it was checked the car started without a problem >.> they said that maybe the battery was starting to go bad so I got a new one. What seems to be the problem? It does make a sound like a little vacuum noise when I try to start it and the radio and lights work when its on.I even took it out for a long drive and it didn't break down or have a problem.All in all I'm looking for a solution as I want to sell this car soon and I honestly don't know what to check.

Days later tried again no problem. Brings it back to me 1hr later wouldn't start. Came the n

Update it was the starter fuse. Basically I called my mechanic again and guess what...? The car started when he checked it >.> so he checked everything and predicted it to be a starter fuse so he swapped it out and so far no problems have occured. Hopes this helped anyone with this problem.
