|I'm thinking some kind of vapor lock,|
Resurrecting this, as I had an interesting issue today. Started the car this morning to go to work, it has been sitting for 6 days, and temp was 18*. She fired right up. Got to work, and it sat 1.5 hours, went out to run an errand, and she cranked at least 5 seconds. Almost thought she wasn't going to start. Drove about 2 miles, had to stop and drop off some mail, car was shutoff maybe 1-2 minutes, and then she fired right up again.
Get to my next destination, where it sat about 1 hour. Temp is now only about 23*. Came out to start her, and again, cranked 3-4 seconds this time. What is going on? She starts instantly after a week of sitting, but on after sitting 1-2 hours, she is taking a while to light - engine turns over just fine, and battery in EVIC is averaging 14.1 volts, as it always has since new. I've had it 3 years in February, 10,000 miles on her.
Just something with the cold?
I thought of a fuel rail leakdown myself. Car only has 10,000 miles, and never an issues. Why would the car start instantly after sitting for a week though, if this were the case?
That would be because the gasoline had time to vaporize and then go out of the chamber....open valves, pcv etc. It is when it is warm and spritzing while sitting there under pressure and still wet that it produces the flooded condition.
Call me, we can discuss.
