Before I took it in for the engine re-build, it would start "one kick", whether hot or cold, even after not driving it for a week plus. I could even turn the key with my hand through the window and it would start, no revving required.
Now, hot or cold, I have to continuously crank the engine for a bout 5-8 secs, with my foot a bit on the throttle, before it comes to life. Once it does start, there is a rough idle, sort of misfire for about 5 more seconds, then a smooth idle. Thereafter its smooth to drive, plenty power and acceleration.
The mechs say they took the car to a service shop for "tuning" before they delivered it back to me. I'm not sure what this "tuning" exactly was.
have the same problem?
