The Problem

Cold start not working.
Feb 24, 2012 (8 years ago)
It has a fuel injection system, not a choke. When I start the engine it will not tick over, I have to keep the revs up until the engine warms up. sometimes after I have driven a few miles the engine will be revving up to 2500 rpm
when i start the car half an hour later it ticks over OK?? HELP????
