Hot start problem

Recommended Posts

DSYKES5500

Hi all, 

When I try to start the car when the engine is hot it just turns over until I press the accelerator a bit to get it going. Does anyone know what may be going on? Standard 1.9. 

 

Thanks

Sounds normal tbh. The injection system on these cars is extremely basic, it cannot add airflow as it has no means of doing so. A modern car will open the idle valve on hot start and then control the airflow to govern idle speed. 
If it ain’t broke.....
