Mine just did exactly this yesterday. 2017 Qashqai (Rogue Sport) Manual trans. Bought used in 2020, car has 80,000 kms. This car has always had a delayed start, changed the battery few weeks ago. Never had a car that took this long to start, but it always has started, just takes a few seconds.My 2017 Rogue Sport S 2.0 L engine wants to stall or hesitate at the first cold start as soon as I place my foot on the gas pedal.
It has just started this in the last month. There are no warning lights on. I purchased used from a dealership in 2021 and presently has 51,700 miles and I'm trying to stay away from servicing at a dealership. I'm also unsure if I should purchase an over the counter fuel treatment per the manual states that could hurt the engine.
What recommendations do you have on this issue to fix this?
