***** Tried this idea already. Doesnt make any difference.
My normal start procedure is to turn the ignition swittch to "On",
wait a few seconds, then crank the engine. However, I also tried the
"no wait procedure" before cranking.
The engine will start on the first crank after it has warmed up. If I
need to visit a few stores, I have no problems with starting on first
crank after leaving each store.
The problem will start up if the engine has cooled down enough . .. if
the temp gauge is back at the bottom, then I may have to crank twice
