Hi all. I am that scatterbrained at the moment that I can't remember posting about my car's cold start problems. If I have I apologize but here goes.
On my carby XF, I have a cold starting problem. I suspected that it could be the plugs, so I changed them. NO difference. I tested the ignition leads. Fine and dandy. Checked and changed the coil, (resistance readings were off a little). Still no change. Had a mate check the dizzy and he says it's in good nick. The carby I changed myself not three months ago and its in very good nick. So what could the problem be??? It's driving me nucking futs
well when i try to start mine and it does it, it sounds like its the battery....but only a week or two ago after we put my sub in we checked the battery with a multimeter and she was healthy and i doubt ive drained it in that small time, so yeah im stumped
"Hey, it compiles! Lets sell it" - What Microsoft probably says about all its products.
If what i'm saying isn't making any sense, im not drunk, im just like this all the time..............ok so maybe im drunk, but thats beside the point...
ok i have similar issues. if i pump the accelerator a few time then start it and get off the gas straight away it idles just nice. but if you give it some revs or something then let your foot off it goes mental! shakes like shit and doesnt idle properly. this is only cold, when its warm its fine. ive had it all tuned yet it still does it. also about the battery, if i put it on the charge and the battery is fully charged it just idles like a dog till its warm for the next few days till the excess power has been lost from the battery. i dont have issues with cranking or a flat battery or anything though. think it may just be one of those things you cant really do much about.
