Starting Problem

Hi all,


Starting engine with 1986 Type Turbo Quattro, sometimes when left for longer
time in cold weather the car has to be cranked for a long time, 4 cranks
each 10 seconds, then car puffs and puffs and runs. Mechanic told me it has
something to do with air intake, and sensors. Ignition is not problem
according to him. He once used a T-shaped Allen screw to remedy problem. If
temperature is 5C+ there is no problem.


Any comments?
