Hey everyone.

Got my major service done last weekend and noticed that since i got it back, it takes the starter close to 10 kicks to turn the engine over, however it used to take no more than 3 kicks.

Do you know what could be the cause aside from starter or battery?

As if it were the battery, im sure it wouldve died by now, but if the starter...then how would this happen since a major service?

If it's just had major service, there is a chance they stuffed up the timing and it's out by a tooth or two...
Had similar thing happen to a family members car after father in-law did the timing.
Same symptoms, it took ages to build up cylinder pressure or something before it would combust and fire on it's own. Otherwise drove "ok" once it was running.
Rechecked it, re-timed it, and it was gold there after.

May not be the case for our engines being they are an interference type, so if it's really bad, it's gonna be doing more bad than good.

They could have left an earth strap off.

The ECU will have lost its temp memort, and may take a bit of driving to re-learn the trims.

They could have converted your car to be running on E85 now. That usually takes a few more cranks to start in colder weather

(joke)

to clarify, i didnt get the timing belt done as i got that done couple months ago for safe measure and did the rest of the service last weekend.

what ive noticed is that if i turn the key on (but no start motor) for about 30 secs, then start it...it seems to startup fine so im guessing its a fuel related thing maybe the filter or the pump.

filter is part of the service so maybe they put on a faulty one, or its the pump which is just plain bad luck

Bram maybe onto this issue!

When I had my GD WRX the Walbro O Ring failed and I would idle but not power on, sort like limp mode but not!

Not same but good call Bram!

took it back and they fixed it free of charge, was a pinched O ring in the fuel filter.

Didnt think something so insignificant could have such an effect.

Points to Bram and Forester4thetrees for calling it
