    Default Bad started - only sometimes

    Car runs a dream but takes ages to start sometimes.....

    First thing in the morning when its cold, it will fire up no problem.

    But when its cool, warm or hot, it will sometimes turn over and over for a while before finally firing up, then it might idle bad for a split second before it finally realises how it should be running and then its perfect.

    If I then turn it off and try to start it straight away, it will fire first turn and keep doing so.

    Its almost like its getting the incorrect information in order to start it correctly.....

    ideas?

    Dont kill me but the Z32 is petrol is it not?
    If that is the case...many things comes to mind, not of them really will fall into the symptoms described....but you can check spark plugs, dirty petrol inyectors...or an ECU fault that might be cured by new software or by reseting it

    Default me too!

    i was just about to put the same message on here. my car will start great cold, hot, wet, dry anything. then just now and then takes ages to start and ticks over bad until i give it a rev. i've noticed the battery light stays on when this happens. once i rev it and the idle is back to normal, the battery light goes off straight away. any one have an idea? its a 2.2 petrol.
