Question : I WONDER whether it is normal for
fuel injection cars to have starting hiccups when cranking on the first time,
i.e. cranking sound is there but the engine does not start.
If it is not normal, then what could
be the cause? How to rectify it ?
My workshop has not been able to
solve the problem after many trials and
Two things need to happen to start an
1. There must be sufficient fuel pressure to the injectors, and
2. When the engine is cold, the cold
start valve to activate it in order that there
is a richer fuel mixture to start.
If the pressure is insufficient, there will
be difficulty starting. If you have to crank
for a long time to start the engine even
when the engine is hot, then also look at
the ignition timing.
My frank opinion is that the service
shop that you are going to does not have
sufficiently trained technicians and you
should go to a bigger set-up with better
