Ford Sport Ka Duratec Starting Issues When Cold
Posted 22 March 2013 - 11:05 AM
When cold my 04 sportka won't start unless I thrash the engine it won't hold tick over and cuts out. It eventually holds. This only happens when overnight cold. If I leave it a few hours it starts fine.
It had full service yesterday.
Any ideas guys

If it shed's any light on things it fires and cut's out first 2 attempts and catches on the 3rd.

It may just be a sticky Idle Control Valve. Its a bit of a pain to get to on the SportKA. You need a 3 year olds fingers and a small ring spanner as well as removing the throttle body to get at it.
