I think you are right. I am also experiencing the starting
problem. The starting problem happens in 2 cases.
1- If I am driving, and accidently left the clutch while
the car was not in the right gear, and the engine stalled.
The car won't start. I have to wait for somewhere around
3-5 minutes, and then it will start right away.
2- If I didn't crank the engine enough durring my first attempt
to start. The subseqeunt attempts will fail to start the car.
Again have to wait for 3-5 minutes, and things will be hunky
dory (spelling ?) after that.
Beside starting problem, my boost is also not that great, and
there is also some missing.
I just checked and found out that the hose is teared from the
bottom. This weekend I will replace it and will give you an
Thanks for the nice tip.
