Re: [DML] Sputtering when cold



These symptoms *could* be a WUR, aka Control Presure Regulator, but
they could also be caused by a lot of other reasons. Has the car had a
tune-up recently or ever? Worn ignition parts, spark plugs, wires,
etc, can also cause hard cold start symptoms. You could also have a
problem in the cold start system. These things have to be checked
BEFORE you start throwing parts at it! There is no one thing that
causes these symptoms. I like to review the service history of a car
before attempting diagnosis. If a lot of parts were recently replaced
one could be defective or improperly installed. Also what was the
origional problem? This may not be in your case but if there was any
recent work and now you have a problem then that work is suspect.
