[DML] Re: Hard Start/ Bad Idle

If you hear the Frequency valve buzzing then the fuse and the relay
(#30 Main Fuel) is OK. Stale gas can be a problem so get some fresh
stuff in the car. The fuel smell could be from trying to run the car
without the Frequency valve working, it may go away or you could have
a problem with the cold start valve staying on to long. Of course all
of this assumes the car was running perfect BEFORE storage, that is
not necessarly the case! The Start Inhibit relay is only used on an
automatic, on the 5-speed it is bypassed. It keeps you from running
the starter unless you are in Park or Neutral. The gas smell *could*
be a leak somewhere, if it is you must find and fix it before you have
a fire! If you took fittings apart recheck for leaks.
