    Well after unpluging the cold start valve and recharging the battery (I had previously replaced the fuel accumulator), the car finally started and ran fine for a week. No throttle body flooding problems any more. After driving the car a couple of days ago, I was putting it up on ramps to change the oil and stalled it. Now it won't start again. Starter 's turning fine, I have spark and fuel. What gives? Patrick

    Well you can't have spark and fuel and have the car not start unless, valve timing issues, electrical timing issues (likely), or VERY weak spark, or inadequate fuel supply. Hook the coldstart back up and try it.

    I had this problem before it started a week ago. Once it ran, it would start with or without the cold start valve. I'm obviously having an intermittent problem. Any ideas? Patrick
