I have a fiesta 1.4 2003 zetec.
When the engine and weather is cold, usually the morning. It is difficult to start the car. It starts but then immediately cuts out. The second time i would start it and rev slightly and wait until the engine gets warm (if i do not rev the engine would cut out again)
After it is warm the engine is fine.
This is extremely annoying when I'm in a rush to work!
Any ideas why this is?
I have this sort of problem when its a cold wet day first time trying to start the car. I found that usi g GT85 or WD40 to spray leads at spark plug end wile connected the night before helps as I think it stops moisture but it is a temporary fix that works once each time. I have leads which I will be replacing very soon. try and spray them the night before and if it starts well or better the next morning at least you have a rought idea where to start.
Keep us updated and let us know what the problem is when solved
