[DML] Re: Warm Start Issue

It sounds to me like you car is not holding "Rest Pressure". The next
time it won't start do the plug swap between the control pressure
regulator and the cold start valve. If it starts right up it is one of
the following:
fuel leak
leaky fuel pump check valve
leaky primary pressure regulator
A definitive test is to hook up a fuel pressure gauge but even that
can't tell you which part is bad. If the accumulator has never been
changed I would start with that. The sensor in the water pump controls
the cold start valve and since you say it starts good when cold I
would guess that it is OK. I would recheck the vacuum hoses too. Have
a friend go over it with you, you may be missing something and it is
often hard to find your own mistakes, you keep passing over it.
Messing up the vacuum hoses can make it harder to start. There is a
temperature sensing device in the advance circuit.
