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.
