Question about 1990 Mitsubishi Galant
I have a 1990 Galant SuperSaloon and it's always a hard-start in the morning after the car has been idle the whole night and whenever I rev it up immediately upon starting, it seems to choke. So I step on the gas pedal on minimal increments until it is able to "clear up its throat" then it runs better. While the engine runs, I need to keep stepping on the accelerator to feed gas to it before it runs smoothly. When it's hot, the cranking is shorter but still not a one-click start unless I feed it with fuel before turning the ignition keys to start. I have already replaced the carbeuretor, spark plugs and fuel pump; I still have the same problem. What else could be causing the problem and what do you suggest?
I have the same "problem" with my 1990 Galant SS but I didnt think it was a problem. Everybody who knew anything about cars would always advice me to get the engine warmed-up first if it was left with the engine not running for long periods of time. I keep it warmed up for at least 5 minutes or so while waiting for the temp gauge to at least move towards the halway mark. But if its hot then a one click start should be the normal case. Try to get a tune-up on your nearest service center, they dont just replace the spark plugs but also have some sort of kit that helps with the idling and startup issues.
