Re: '91-90q20v cold start issues

My hard starting is definitely due to a weak fuel
pump.  I was in Pennsylvania recently and my 1990
Audi 100 started and ran well in cold weather,
but only if the fuel pump ran like it is supposed
to when the key is switched to on (before starting).
 When the pump gets lazy and fails to run for 3
seconds when the ignition is switched on,  the
result is lots of cranking and hard starting. 
Maybe you've got the same weak fuel pump problem.
