S2 K not starting when cold

Recommended Posts

My car is off to ES Motorsport on Monday for its first health check (only owned her for six days) so by then I'll know all its problems but...

At the moment the car doesn't like starting from cold, it'll fire then conk out. In order to get round this I have to apply a small amount of throttle until there is a small amount of heat in the engine. Even then it is lumpy until up to full temp. As a mechanical novice I'm not sure what it could be. Any similar issues from others on here?

Dizzy, coil packs, HT leads, spark plugs? They can all cause cold starting issues and none of them are expensive.

 

I'm sure Dave will get to the bottom of it in short order. :)
