2005 Skoda Fabia 2005 1.4 Sport petrol Cold starting

Problem added: Mar 31, 2009 (11 years ago)
I have a 2005 Skoda Fabia 1.4 Sport (petrol) which has a problem starting from cold. To get it started I have to press the accelerator right down and then off and then start to press it down again before it catches. It is then a bit lumpy for a couple seconds and smells very rich.
