RE: [DML] Starting problem Please Help

It could be your Cold Start system indeed.  Possibly related to fuel 
delivery but you're probably okay.  A few guys out here have to crank em a 
few times before they start up cold.

Test the switch and then test the Cold Start Valve itself.

A guy told me a few years back when I first got started to remove the valve 
to see if it sprayed when you power up without starting the car.  I believe 
he said to get a large piece of cardboard to spray on.

Honestly, I'd just pull the valve and clean it up the end of the nozzle if 
it looks dirty and see if that helps.  When they get build up inside they 
may work but just drip a bit which really isn't much help when you're trying 
to start the car cold.

Hope this helps.
