Re: Need assistance..cold start sensing..

i would say that your base idle is not high enough, you could just wind in the throttle stop on the throttle body one turn and see how it goes...

For a better idle it appeared that my throttle butterfly was too closed and thus the engine had a miss at idle speed.Lack of air at idle basically..
