[DML] Re: Strange acceleration problem



My fuel filter was replaced in August. About 2 months ago I was having
a problem where the car wouldnt start when cold. It took many atempts
to finally start. Dave Delman helped me with this problem locating a
faulty electrical connection on the cold start valve. That seemed to
correct the problem but I now get this backfiring. I'm thinking the
cold start valve is going bad?
