as i reciently posted:I HAVE A 300E THAT RUNS OK EXEPT FOR A SLIGHTLY ROUGH IDLE , A DELAY ON TAKE OFF AND A NOTICEABLE AMOUNT OF HORSEPOWER LOSS.
WHATS WIERD IS IF YOU LET THE CAR SIT FOR A DAY EVERYTHING WORKS GREAT TILL THE NEXT DAY
I TESTED THE THEORY AGAIN AND DIDNT USE IT FOR 4 DAYS. IT WAS 50 DEGREES OUTSIDE WHEN I STARTED IT AND ALL I HAD TO DO WAS TAP THE IGNITION AND IT STARTED RIGHT UP! USUALLY IT TAKES A RETRY OR AT LEAST TWO SECONDS BEFORE IT WILL IGNITE. I HOPE THAT THE INFO GIVEN WILL BE ENOUGH FOR A REASONABLE EXPLANATION.
ANY RESPONCE WILL BE GREATELY EPRECIATED.
THANKS,
ADAM

i was wondering (since i have heard so much talk about them) could my cats be causing this problem by creating too mutch back pressure. i know my rear muffler was so bad i had to rip it off for holy rust bucket embarressment reasons.
