96 1.6 16V Zetec Cold Start Issues

Recommended Posts

Morning all

Have the model listed in title. When starting the car from cold it will start with the first turn of the key, but unless the revs are kept just above idle, the engine will cut out. It then takes 3 or 4 long turns of the starter to get it to start again. Once warmed ( after only a 2 min drive) the car runs happily.

I was thinking perhaps an Automatic choke problem maybe? Is there anything I can check?

Car is in garage next week for a service too.

Thanks all.

Thanks for your replies. It went in the garage today and one of the vacuum pipes had split, it's also had a full service, so lets see how it starts tomorrow. :)
