rough start

ok guys this could either be a serious problem or something not to big wich is what im hoping. whenever i start my car in the mornings my car starts up really rough like it turns right back off and then i turn the ignition again and then it starts right up. and doesnt act up the rest of the day so i dont know what it is ive heard differant things but i dont konw what it could be. id appreciate any help or any suggestions to help me know where to look i mean i could take it back to the dealership but i want that to be a last resort cause i gotta injen c.a.i so i gotta take it off first just so i make sure they dont give me any crap about it haha

I've had that same problem for over a year now. I've had it in 3 times for the issue, but the dealership still says they "can't reproduce the problem". Starts right up with no issue when it's still warm. Let it sit for a few hours, cranks for 3 seconds then shuts off, second try starts right up. The last month or so it's been starting on the first try every time, but barely. Wish I knew what it was...

there is a TSB that refers to this. Let me find it. It has to do with cold starting.

here you go:

Quote:
Engine Runs Rough After Extended Crank, and/or Engine Hesitation on Acceleration after Initial Cold Start During Ambient Temperatures Below 10 C (50 F) (Reprogram Powertrain Control Module [PCM]) TSB# 05-06-04-006
tell the dealer this, then if they balk, bust out the TSB.

^uh...if you can...try to change it back to the stock set-up. they will give you crap, then you'll have a hard time getting things fixed in the future...(i kno from experience)

otherwise, the moss magnusson warranty act is supposed to protect you, but it doesnt protect you from overzealous warranty threatening service managers...they can treat you like crap, just cause you look at them funny...
