Read Fuelling up??

Guys,

Just noticed over the last week or so that sometimes when starting my EBII it takes ages to fire, like the old carby model cars of the 80s-90s. This is most particular after i have been on a long drive, or even if I have left it parked when Im at work then start it. All the fuel filters, lines, injectors, and pumps are clean and always looked after. No trouble after the car has started or during driving, but only when starting on indifferent occassions. Sometimes it wont do it at all and starts within 2 cranks (which is 90% of the time) Just seems like it is either fuelling up or not get enough at that time. Any ideas, thoughts?..

When you say takes ages to fire....does it splutter to a start and run rough for a while after that?
if it does than you may have a slightly blown head gasket as I had this on my escort, ran beautifully until I switched her off and left it sit for a little while....only used a tiny amount of coolant too

Lets go find that Hotdog tree I planted

Nah, doesnt splutter, it fires up nicely, but just takes that long to do it, that it shits me. Im not losing any coolant/water.

Okay... you should do this test to see if it's your injectors/fuel regulator leaking thats causing the problem.

In the morning when you first try to start the car, before trying to start it, turn the key from accesories(the one that lets you have radio on) to ignition(the spot that brings the oil and other lights up) and take it back to accessories again. Then go back to ignition again... repeat doing this for about 3 times.

Now try to start the motor. If she starts easy, you have leaking injectors/regulator.
