    Hello All, 
          I have a problem with #5903. First off it's been about 2 years
since I've really driven the car. The biggest concern it when I
start it. It doesn't want to start very easily.

  "Jason, The cold start valve may not be working. If you don't know how to check it out let me know."

It was barely 500rpm and would just die if I didn't give it gas. 
Do you smell gas like in flooding, if not then 2 things. The distributor plunger may be stuck or the lower idle speed screw may need adjusting. The latter should not have changed since last yr. 

  "Most of your problems are gas related. It may have just sat to long and need cleaning."
