I am in the US and I know that that it gets real cold over there (atleast I think so) When you say hard to start do you mean like it takes a long time or you mean that it will not start on first crank up).

I seem to have the same problem, I belive even when it is below 60 degrees it takes well over 3 times and when started it chugs for a few minutes(3-5 min). When warmed up it starts great, but when not started for an hour or so it will do the same thing. HArd to start.

Hard To Start In Cold Weather !!!

Hi,

It seems that you have problem with your COLD START VALVE and/or Thermo-time switch!
You have to check the working of Cold start valve, cuz this item is too important in the cold weather, it's the fifth Injector that inject fuel at the begining to make the engine start directly.

Thank you
