    My car has a hard time starting from a cold start. Sometimes it will start ok and hold rpms at like 1800 for a few seconds then drop to like 500 and stall. Sometimes i have to give it gas or it won't even fire. Besides cold starts my car runs perfect: holds idle good, great afr's, so my question pretty much is is there any way to change the fuel sliders so i can adjust them at say 1000rpms? B/c if u notice the fuel sliders start at 2000rpms so if i could adjust for the lower rpms it would prob help my starts. Here is a log sry but i don't have a log with me actually cranking the car but look at this log if u dont know what im talking about.. thanks View attachment log.2010.03.14-04.elg

    I know this is an old post, but have you looked into the coolant temp sensor? The reading the ecu sees off it determines enrichment on cold start. Hope you find the issue.
