    I've been having an annoying issue with my dsm in the past few months. It takes 3-4 seconds of ignition to start on cold start. I was wondering who else is experiencing this problem and how i can fix it. Is it a coil pack, Power transistor, or fuel injector problem? :confused: BTW The starter is fairly new.

    start with the basic tune-up. Your fuel filter could be starting to clog up.

    Or your coolant temp sensor. Does it smell rich after it starts up?

    The coolant temp sensir tells it how much fuel to pour in when its cold. But you would also be having trouble starting after its already warmed up.

    I'll check into it just to be safe.

    No it doesn't smell rich. I also have a narrowband that bounces around in ideal.

    My vote is battery and or starter. And if your battery dips lower than 11.3 volts when starting its bad.
