For the past couple of months whenever the car is cold, for example, its sitting all day in the parking lot, it never starts up on the first try. It always takes 2 times for me to turn the key and get her started. When the engine is warm, it starts up at the first crank as normal. Whats the problem here??

Depending on the outside temp the cold start injector may not be working

Check the thermo vacuum valve. Make sure the vacuum connectors are not broken. Located under air cleaner housing, towards rear of head, has two vacuum lines attached.

No matter what you fix, there will always be something else to fix..
"Warranty" is just another way of postponing the inevitable.
