RE: [DML] Odd Starting Issue

The accumulator needs to be replaced. Typical hot start problem.

I seem to be having an odd starting issue.  I have noticed that whenever the
car is parked outside on a semi-hot day (75-85 *F) while I'm at work it will
take significant cranking for the engine to catch (7-8 cranks) when I go to
drive home.  But it does catch and runs just fine after that.  However,
after the car has spent the night in the garage it will start up just fine
in the morning on the first or second crank.  I have also noticed that hot
starting is fine, just periodic cold-start issues during warmer weather.
The hotter the day, the harder the start.  I have replaced the fuel
accumulator, the fuel pump with a new check valve and have verified that the
cold-start valve is functioning as well as the thermal time switch.  Any
