Three of the past four years as the temperature changes to cold the car behaves the same way. It cranks but will not start at first in the morning. Once it does it is fine starting for the rest of the day. I have learned from the previous times not to flood the engine, since in the past it has resulted in the expense of replacing all the plugs and wire. When this happened last year, at the same time, my local import shop made the repairs but I had to visit a dealership to have the computer reset to original settings for it to continue to work. There is also a problem, three of the past four years, that as the summer months arrive, the Mass Air Flow/Crank Sensor has to be replaced. As a side note, in 2008 I visited a Dealership for the first non-warranty oil change; a week later there was oil in the engine and it had to be replaced. The Dealership accepted no responsibility, other than to make the repairs in conjunction with my insurance company, as I had Engine Failure Insurance.
Thanking you in advance for any guidance.
have the same problem?
