Cold Start Question .... - Saabnet.com Bulletin Board
Hi - for the past couple of days i've had to crank my 900S longer than usual at a cold start - normally, the engine turns over pretty fast - less than 2 sec of cranking but now is at about 6 seconds. If I start up again, the cranking time is back to normal - if the car sits for a bit, it will then take a longer time. I had a load test done on the battery and a drain test, starter test, and everything is fine. Crank speed isn't slowed or anything. I'm wondering if maybe there is a fuel issue here. What I'm reminded of when it takes a long time for the engine to start - my '73 MGB sometimes sits for weeks with starting it and always I need to set the choke (enrich the full mixture) to get it going. So this is what is leading me to think it might be fuel/injector related. Anyway, any thoughts? Thanks!
