    Hard hot starts are symptomatic of a leaky FPR. Check it out. Instructions are in the Tech Tips section.

    thanks Ranger I will give this a try this weekend. One last question will this also take care of my temperature gauge? when the car is hot and want start the gauge do not move. but when it cold it works find. also some time even after it cranks my heater do not work. do i need to go back into the throttle bottle to make sure i have good connections.

    The FPR has nothing to do with the temperature gauge or the heater. Neither does the Throttle Body if that is what you are referring to by "throttle bottle".
