I have an AU XR6 HP. Occasionally (about 1 in every 15-20 starts) the engine seems to cough and splutter a bit more than usual B4 going Vrooom. Normally the engine starts around 1-1.5 sec after I turn the key, but when this happens it takes from 2.5 to 3 secs. I was told once to switch the A/C off before starting but that doesn't seem to be the case. Is there someone who knows thier stuff that can shed a bit of light on this. The service guys don't seem to know about it no matter how much I try to explain to them.
Much as I HATE
to say this (and give the wrong impression to those looking at AU XR's), mine is doing the same lately. Took 3 goes to start this morning. I've run 2 tanks of PULP through it, after looking at PULP threads on here, with no results.
I used to just be able to turn key, start immediately. I, too, have ensured AC is off, no difference.
Another visit to the hospital, me thinks. Still love it, but!
