	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.

	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.
