Bad cold start?

If you're having problems with cold starts, I suggest going to Huw's page
on CIS-E troubleshooting:  I found the site when
my 4kcsq was having problems and found it was just due to the removal of
the "spare" fuse.  I'm not sure if the troubleshooting tips apply to your
vehicle, but they're bound to help.

There's a little note that if the file helped you, you should send $5.00
to his Paypal account.  I tried to do this, but Paypal said he wasn't
registered.  I sure hope he gets the five dollars, since his advice saved
a world of headache.
