Rough cold start

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hiya I have not used the car for a couple of weeks due to a operation - normally it's my daily car but came to start it this morning and it sounded rough when accelerating. Then after 4 mins was ok. Not sure if there is anything to check or watch for or if it's just the cold weather.

Sorry to jump on thread but could be similar issues possibly... when it's cold and frosty in the morning and I start the beast up it really struggles to stay alive for seconds then everything is OK. Iv got a video here....thing is it never did it last year in the winter

 

Any thoughts i would be greatfull, hopefully could help us both out.

It's not the throttle body that needs cleaning or something to do with spark plugs? Sounds similar to mine Rob.

Just been trying to research a fix - could try injector cleaners and see if this works if it's to do with fuel. Try it and see how I get on and let you know.

I filled up with some redex and has made a bit of difference. Seems to be running better

Mine was really throaty before when it was left up. Fingers crossed it helps you. The other things I found was spark plugs and throttle casing needing cleaning. Let me know how you get on.
