Ford Sport Ka Duratec Starting Issues When Cold


Recommended Posts

A question for my first proper post. Hope that's ok.

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

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.
