Engine Performance problem
2001 Volkswagen Passat 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 149000 miles
For the last two mornings, I am having problems with the first start in the morning. Engine and starter seem fine, but it's as if there is no fuel getting to injectors. After 4-6 trys at starting the engine, its as if the fuel starts to slowly trickle in, but not to all cylinders. After a couple more trys at turning the engine over, I'm able to keep the engine going with help from foot on accelerator until engine seems to be operating on all cylinders. After a total of 10 minutes or so, I'm off to work.
The rest of the day, I don't have any problems starting the car at all. Absolutely starts in two seconds.
So, seeing as I don't want to keep wearing down my starter, what's the real cause of this problem? Any thoughts?
Thanks in advance.
have the same problem?
