Cold Start Issue

Post by JOH »

Hi All,

My injected Scala is taking two or three turns of the ignition to get it started from cold. Seems like fuel is not getting through on first / second turn then fires up fine.

I've heard talk of 5th injector being the culprit although are replacements available? Any suggestions?
