[DML] Re: Odd Starting Issue

I would verify proper operation of 2 systems that are active during
cold start. One is the cold start valve and is only active when cold
and cranking and the other is the ignition bypass relay by the ballast
resistor which is always active during cranking. If both are working
my next suspect would be the CPR. When starting cold follow the
owner's manual, hold the accelerator pedal down 1/4 way. That may
help. You may also need a tune-up replacing worn spark plugs and
ignition wires.

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 thoughts?
