2000 Silver SSEI is on a distinguished road
Default Starting hard

I have a 2000 ssei with 29,000 that i bought with 26,000 so i haven't had it long. It starts hard when cold some times. It seems like I am holding the key in the start position longer than should be needed, after it starts if runs hard for about 5 sec. and will not idle smooth untill after this time. If any one has any ideas i would like to hear them.

Thanks!

Try something while we're trying to narrow this down for you:

Turn the ignition on and wait about 5 seconds before starting the car next time. See what it does.

Welcome to the forum!
IE letting the fuel pump prime the line.
