Hard Cold Starting
Thanks every one for all of the help. I decided to have the agency repair the car per their diagnosis - ignition coil and plugs. That they would own the problem for a year. This seems to have fixed the problem. It has not been real cold lately, but the car was not starting at all when I had it towed to the agency. Now it starts every time - first try and does not stall when putting it in gear.
The diagnosis did not sound right to me - but it fixed the problem - go figure.
Now the next question. I put some new NGK plugs in the car a year back - could the plugs somehow have dragged down the coil???
Thanks again - I now have the manual on CD so the next problem I am armed and ready.
