Do I Need to Pump Gas Pedal Few Times Before Starting My Cobalt

This is a very stupid question, I know, but please excuse my lack of knowledge, because my new Cobalt is the first new car in the last 30 years (yes, the Chevy dealer gave me a $1000 cash discount for my 30 years old Impala towards my new Cobalt. The Impala was badly rusted out, but it was running like a charm, and in 30 years NEVER quit once !!!), so I am so new to these Fuel Injected cars and all that. So, my Impala needed a few gas pedals before it would start (carburetor, of course). Do I need to do the same with my new Cobalt?

Thx.

Yeah, it broke my hart giving her away, but I am getting old and cannot do much work on the cars any more, and she needed a bunch of stuff done, and to pay mechanics to do it was too expensive.

The answer is no. And it is too bad, those were really awesome and solid cars, but its completely understandable.

You don't even need to hold the key in the ignition in these things... Just turn it for a quick second and it will crank automatically
