Code 12, isn't actually a trouble code, its a starting point, and ending point for the diagnosis system. when it flashes its telling you ok we're starting the diagnosis and when it flashes again its saying ok its completed. its the codes after the 12 you are looking for.

As for the hard starting when cold, could just need a tune up. The fuel pressure may be low. Compression could be low. I would do a compression test to make sure.

I hope this helped give you some ideas on things to check.

Hard starting, turns over fine it just cranks alot before it fires up.


Does it hard start when warm or only when cold? could very possibly be a fuel pressure problem, like fuel pressure regulator. Also could be cold start injector.
Thanks,

1990 pontiac j6000 wont start


Crank position sensor bad?
Are you sure the fuel pump is working? Might be the sending unit in the fuel pump that is bad. Clogged lines, clogged fuel injectors, clogged fuel filter, all things that could be checked.
