    Default Trouble Starting

    My engine has trouble starting up sometimes....especially during colder periods.....

    HOWEVER!

    It doesn't happen in the morning when the car is at its coldest and been sat all night, it only happens at 5pm when leaving work, when the car has only been stood through the day....


    Anyone help?

    Cheers!

    JCB

    Mine happened about four days after it'd been in for a new gearbox but I wouldn't draw a link between the technitions being under the bonnet and the car breaking a few days after, I'm not that synical. Well I am really.

    Network Q did it for me, sorry JCB. I think they did the EGR Valve at the same time. But get someone to look into it before you part with your hard earned.
