Accord Hard Cold Start
04-03-2008, 01:08 PM
I have a 1987 Accord LXi that is extremely hard to start when cold. Will start anytime during the day until it sits all night long.
Things that have been checked/fixed:
idle control valve-replaced
timing off one tooth-fixed
cold advance solonoid-checked
coolant system bled
Any ideas or anyone else had this problem?:feedback:

Turns over but won't start, acts like it not getting fuel.
Fuel pump has appox 36 psi.
Starts fine after it's started the first time that day.

check the coolant temp sensor... if its bad the engine wont know its cold and wont enrich the fuel mixture
