RE: [DML] Hard start issue?

Sounds like an accumulator problem.  I had a similar issue when I 
drove my car home from New Mexico to Minnesota.  The car 
had been running great all week, so we got brave and went off
the beaten path in Wyoming.  We stopped for lunch in the bustling
town of Lusk.  Lusk is the only place I have ever seen a combination
antique and pet shop.  At any rate, after having an extra ignition
key made at the local Ace hardware, the car started up fine.  After 
sitting for a couple of hours while we had lunch, it would not 
start using the normal starting procedure.  It eventually started
using the technique you describe.  When we got home, the 
problem was traced to the accumulator.  It was replaced and
I have not had a problem since.
