As the subject says. CIS. To date I have changed the fuel pump check valve, all injectors (for new), and the 2 small o-rings on the primary pressure regulator. I have no leaks and unfortunately, no pressure gauges. Under normal conditions, the car starts like a champ when cold. Barely turns over one revolution before firing up. When warm/hot, it can take 5-12 seconds of constant cranking. When it finally does start, it "chugs" or almost like it misses a little. That part is hard to describe. After it catches itself and settles down to idle, it smoothes out, well, as smooth as a 22 YO Audi will get! Anyway, have I missed anything? I know if I where to test the holding pressure at the CSV, I would certainly be able to offer more info. Any suggestions?
