Rough starting, chugging, then smooth?
Hi folks. 96 Bonney (named "Clyde") has been really good to us over the past 150k. She has been sitting neglected in a driveway for 2.5 years, occassionally started.
Now, starts, I let it idle, runs ok for 30 seconds, then wants to die. If you give it too much gas, or too little, she will die. If you can keep it from dying, after about 5 minutes she runs fine. If you shut it off and try to restart, it will chug - sputter chug sputter, but not start till she cools down 100%.
Check Engine light does not come on, (only initially with all other warning lights).
Not a classic EGR problem, and the EGR was replaced 20k ago.
She has developed a slight Water pump leak while in storage, could this have effected the CPS? I think not, because it is dry at start up, and wet when the car is running fine.
Any other suggestions? THANKS!!!!
