I have posted on Brickboard, and didnt get a straight answer, no one at Autopia knew... so I came here. Heres my story-<BR>I have a '94 850 Turbo w/ 130k miles, its in good condition but needs an o2 sensor, and a timing belt(never been changed :eek my problem is this... <P>Every time I cold start the car, idle is pittiful it just sits idling unsteadily and is very rough. Its hard to hear this, you just feel it. When reving it almost sounds like a small miss.<P>After driving the car around for about 5-10 minutes (depending on temperature) it really smooths out, after about 15 minutes its perfect, like nothing is wrong. Starting it warm, it runs great from the get go, cold starts suck. <P>I have tried a fuel system cleaner, only ran it for about 30 miles and its a LITTLE better... but still horrible. Any ideas what this could be?<P>Thanks!<P><P>

well on the 240 there is a small object that<BR>sticks out just behind the dizzy. it's a cold start warmer, acumilator or somthing of that type.anyway, if the car runs rougth on a cold morning and dost fuction probly you replace this item, then the car runs fine. my sugeston is find the the cold start and follow the line back to somthing thats sqareish and has a a electrical lead coming out of it. if its not expencive replace it. it is a common problem for 240's and i am takeing a wild guess that this might have a role to play . im probly way off trak but if it helps...<P>michael.<P>
