Re: [DML] Problem #1 Starting Problem...

Pumping the pedal on a Fuel Injected car does not have
the same effect as on the older carburetor engines.

Try to start the engine with you foot about half way
down on the pedal (don't pump it).

See if it starts up any better... 

It is possible you have a leaking injector and there
is a pool of fuel sitting in the head that needs to be
blown out before it will start.
