GTI 1.8 8v - Cold start problems
« on: 16 July 2019, 13:19 »
Hi everyone,
my Golfie has some problems to start when the engine (1.8 EV 8v) is cold. I have to insist with accelerator pedal for a while to turn on the engine.

When the engine runs, I hear some mechanical beats for a while, with the lights of battery and oil still on in the dashboard: after few second and some accelerating, lights turn off and the engine runs good, no more beats.

Any idea?
Idle speed wrong?
Cold start valve fault?
CO to control?

Thanks a lot
