cold start

Postby seanf » Wed Jan 28, 2009 10:46 pm

any one got any ideas what could be up with the motor 9 times out of 10 it starts perfect but this mornin it would only start on the second attempt with a pump of the accelorator then it was fine all day til this evenin back to the same again! Apart from the obvious battery it feels like the car is bein started or something? what else could it be as i only put in a new fuel pump, petrol tank and petrol filter 9 months ago..... Car is startin to get the better of me now i think!!
if d cross is empty.....give 'er plenty

Clean your battery terminals, work from the simplest possible thing, then go through the other stuff if the simple things dont work :wink:

should check some of the sensors that detect water temp. to the best of my knowledge the ecu checks water temp when starting the engine to determine whether the engine is cold or warm, sorta like an auto choke if ya like for when the engine is cold.
