I can't say I've experienced this prolonged cranking before engine begins running. Not sure what good boosting would do though as it sounds like a very good cranking speed.

How long has it been occurring? Could it be related to a tank of fuel? How many miles on the car? Original spark plugs? Manual calls for new plugs at 42k miles.

I didn't think it was going to start and I would have to boost it.
It's been happening more within the last week. I've only filled the tank once. Full tank from dealer and I put a full tank, have just over 1000km. I put 87 octane, could that be it? I guess I can try higher octane and see if that helps.

I still don't undestand this "boost" logic. It's not easy to hear in the video but it sounds like you have a strong battery. I assume boost means jumpstart. What good would that do?


I've never put anything but 87 in my car with no issues. Higher octane will not help you. The questions is did you get a bad batch of gasoline.

"Boost logic"??? lol... I just mean that i didn't think the car would start and i would have to jump start the car. With booster cables and another vehicle.

Bad batch of gas? Not sure, i'm only noticing issues on start up. No problems while driving.

Your battery is fine. Jump starting, aka boosting, won’t help you here. Mine doesn’t take as long to start but it does stumble once in a while on a cold start. I’m thinking you may have a fueling issue. Try priming the fuel system before you start the car.

Get in, don’t push the clutch in (or brake in a DCT) and push the start button twice (blue light on). Wait until the fuel pump stops running, then start the car. If it starts normally, it might indicate that air is getting into the fuel system when the car sits.

I'll give this a try. Thanks.
