    Default Starting problem

    I have a problem when starting the car from cold. It struggles to start, when I does it runs very rough untill you press the throttle. When you do you get a lot of white/black/blue smoke. Once you get to 3.5k revs it clears and runs normal. Runs fine after this and starts fine if warm????? Any help

    this is a good thread to read.

    First thing u can do is unplug the coolant temp sensor on ur header tank and try to start it. This sensor controls the glow plug relay which times the heating.
    Its the plug on the coolant header tank.
