Question about 1997 Plymouth Breeze
Why is my car hard to start when cold? It cranks over about 5-8 seconds before firing up. It is even considerd cold after i stop it and try to restart it after 5 minutes. I installed new plugs and wires. I even started burning premium gas, no difference.
Most probably ur crank position sensor or the pick-up coil is defective (or nearly). What that does is the computer knows where the No.1 cylinder is so that he knows when to send the spark to the correct spark plug. Now ur computer doesn't seem to know where the No.1 cylinder is, so he fires at random. Eventually the spark lands at the right place at the right time, hence ur engine is long to start.
That is my best guess.
