[DML] Re: Starting problem Please Help

You should check out the cold start circuit. When cold the cold start
valve is supposed to squirt fuel ONLY when the starter motor is
actually cranking. You can also make sure the vacuum hoses and vacuum
circuit to the vacuum advance is working correctly. Another thing to
try is holding the gas pedal 1/4 of the way down when starting cold as
per the owner's manual. Some cars seem to start better if you hold the
gas pedal down, others do not need it at all. This can also be the
early sign of the need for a tune-up. Worn plugs, bad wires, dirty
injectors, etc.
