Question Have to rev the engine to get it to start? Issues with traction control going out

Itís always a mystery when I start my car as to whether or not it will start on its own or if Iím going to have to rev my engine to get it started. 9 our of 10 times Iíll have to rev it to get it started. Not sure why. Any ideas?

Also have traction issues where it says I need to have my traction system serviced. Happens almost every time I turn my car on unless I turn off the traction immediately before putting the car in gear. Iíve notice it happens more often when I go from reverse to drive that it acts up. Someone at a shop told me that there were 3 wires and I had to just wait for the wire to snap before they could fix it because they didnít know which it was and it was to costly to buy all 3. We bought a new wheel hub bearing to replace that but never did the job because we were told that it would not solve my issue. Not sure what to do. Any help and advice is greatly appreciated

Wheel Hub Assembly is common for the traction control issue. You have 4 wheel hubs, a shop should know which one is the cause (or it is the wiring to one of the hubs like they said). The wheel hub might actually fix that issue, if that's the speed sensor that is going bad.

The revving to start the car, you might just need to clean the TB, need a new fuel-pressure regulator, or need a new IAC valve.
