Hard start solved
My '82 Audi 5000 had a hard warm start problem that was solved today.
My mechanic, who is probably going to Hawaii thanks to my car, shimmed a
spring in the check valve which had reduced the fuel pressure a bit.
Just enough to make warm starts a bit of a problem. He first pressure
tested the fuel accumulator and it was fine. Imagine the surprise on not
hearing that your Audi doesn't need a new and expensive part :) Anyways
this was the first time I had heard of this solution and decided to pass
it on to others.
