got onna these cars, and it has a ***** of a cold start. like 30 seconds of cranking before it even fires, once it fires once it starts fast after that, runs rough for about 5 secfonds before it's fine. runs great the rest of the day, some smoke once in awhile, ideas?

Re: hard start with d-jettronic (The_Hamster)

I don't know the D-jet system at all, but that type of problem sounds like the fuel is not pressurized in the lines when you start cranking, so the pumps have to build the pressure up before it will start flowing enough fuel to start. Is there a fuel pressure regulator w/vacuum lines? If you haven't done so already, try priming the pump(s) by turning the key to the run position and then off several times, then see if it starts quicker.<p>You might want to try <A HREF="http://www.brickboard.com" TARGET="_blank">http://www.brickboard.com</a> too.
