Engine starts up good & smooth on cold-start and can be driven fine without a problem for 6 Km. After a rest of 20 minutes engine does not start and sometimes splutters. I leave it to cool down (not to drain the battery) for 30 minutes and then it starts up fine but does splutter sometimes on acceleration running unevenly and there is loss of power.
Typically, this problem has persisted for a while wherein on cold start-up it runs fine to any distance but once the engine is shut down and left for 15-20 minutes starting is a problem, running unevenly and occasionally misfiring.
Previously starting after 15-20 minutes was not such a big problem but the engine would stall and run unevenly. Recently this problem has aggravated where now starting-up is a problem
