this car is misbehaving, most of the time it starts fine, then sometimes (like once in week) it doesn't fire. If I wait for like ten minutes and try again, it starts as if nothing was wrong with it. It is becoming unreliable because I cann't tell when this will happen. today It happened in town and I had seek alternative means of transportation, i was in a hurry and could not afford to wait. what could be problem?

Something to do with starter motor or its wiring if it is not turning. or the starter motor relay switch problem if your car got one. A faulty relay system behaves like that. If the starter motor is turning and fast enough, then it is a problem with the firing system. If the starter motor is turning lazily or isnt turning when headlights are on, get a new battery.

Trust me you are the type that has no idea of what happens under the hood.Every man got to know his car,you should be able to pin pin point the source of your problems.
