[DML] Intermittent Cold Start Problems

Hi all,

I have been struggling with cold start problems for the past couple months
on the D.  Initially I thought It was a battery problem, and replaced the
battery.  This worked well for a few weeks, and then cold starting problems
resumed.  Typically, after several unsuccessful attempts to start, the
battery would die down, and jump starting the car was necessary to
successfully cold start the car after 3-4 turns.  On a whim, I removed the
performance air intake tube (GT100200) and this appeared to solve the cold
starting problem.  When I placed the tube back in, the car would not cold
start  This could be a total coincidence, but the air intake tube may simply
be exacerbating the problem (perhaps restricting air flow to the engine).

Does any one have any ideas on what the problem could be?  I'm sure its a
small/simple problem as the car has been very well maintained and looked
over, and all upgrades have been take care of.  Could I simply need a new
cold start valve?  I have no problems during a "hot start."

Thanks all,
