: Keep Turning Over, Start 20 Turns Later ? ?

01-02-09, 08:48 PM
My 96 FW has started something this week, that is new. It turns over far to many times (15-20) before it it start. Then when it starts it runs great. Will restart when it is shut down. Can travel, park and come back to the car hours later and it will start up. Its that initial start that seems to be the problem. Also I'm been burning Reg Gas in it, I was told to burn Reg for the engine was made to run on Reg.

Any suggestions ? ?

Thanks - hap

one thing that comes to mind is the opti-spark, maybe it has moisture in there. There was a tread about that here last year(that sounds like a long time ago). Is it cold or humid where you are? Check out the opti-spark. Thats all I can think of for now.
