i have an 87 coupe gt i just bought it so i dont know much about it. when i try to start it it just keeps cranking and cranking every niow and then it tries to turn over but it doesnt end up starting. i keep killing the battery while trying to start it and end up having someone jumpstart the car. overall it takes about 20 min just to get the car started and them i have to keep my foot barely on the gas to keep it runnig, i have to do this for 5-10 min before its good to drive after it warms up i can shut it off and turn it on with no prob. PLEASE HELP!!!:confused:

my guess is you have a bad 'cold start valve'. basically at key on, if the air temp is below a certain level, the cold start valve will spray extra fuel into the intake for aprox 10-15 seconds(?) to allow for easier starting. pull the cold start valve off the intake boot and spray some ether in there.. see if it starts right up haha.
