Warm starts

  1. Went for a bit of a run today bout 5-6 miles and stopped and ran into a shop, came out and tried to start up, she struggeled aand after a few goes she started. Came home and turned her off and tried again, and again slow so start. She's always been a really good starter and the first turn of the key this morning she started. Is this a common ? And can anyone point me in the right direction ?
  2. I would check the battery first, is it fully charged (12.7ish volts plus), is the battery being charged when running, (14.4ishvolts), check volts at engine (earth not good?) should be the same as the battery!

  3. they always start best cold , but when warm , sometimes they may play up , if everything is up to scratch it shouldnt but best when warm or hot , to slowly press your accelorator to the floor hold it their then turn key n she should fire up no probs , if pump the peddle you will flood it .Try that n see how it goes ,plus they seem to like winter air better :D

  4. Thanks guys will check and try tomorrow
  5. what may be happening, is the fuel in the inlet can sometimes evaporate and you then have to hold the throttle pedal to the floor untill it starts. as above dont pump the pedal
