89 dodge shadow. hard start. normal idle cold, fast idle warm. sometimes it wont start until i hear fuel pump activate.

The car may be hard to start because it may need a normal tune-up. If the spark plugs are pretty used, they will slowly stop burning as much fuel because the spark slowly gets lesser and lesser. On a cold day the fuel is harder to ignite with a small amount of spark.
Normal idle when its cold means that your cars idle is probably too high. If you lower the idle, the choke on a cold day will keep the idle a little higher until the motor warms and then it will kick back off. If the idle is too high, it will run very rich, smothering itself with fuel, and causing the idle to stay low. When the car warms, its creating better spark when its warm, and with the idle being too high its running at a fast idle.
The car wont start sometimes can be the cause of a few things. If the ground is bad on the fuel pump, it wont make a good connection sometimes for when you turn the key on, the fuel pump dont pump the fuel to the engine. Another one can be that your accessory switch can be loose going to the fuel pump. I think its your ground though. Good luck! Hope this helps.
Have a nice day. -Steve

Check to see if ALL of your ground wires were reconnected after the rebuild. Check your mass airflow sensor is functioning and is connected properly. Sometimes a simple wiring issue can be the culprit. Perhaps its not getting any air. Be sure all of the connections are clean and solid. Sometimes when removing an engine, wires can be damaged in the process" pulling them apart or corrosion or rust can create problems".A full tune up with new cap, rotor, plugs, wires, air filter, fuel filter may help as well. Run a timing light on it to be sure it is set to factory specifications.

Take back to whoever tuned it up. They dropped the ball. Only OEM tune ups parts can be used in a Mopar vehicle. NOTHING AFTER MARKET.
