    HI all,

    HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

    Lets get straight into it.....

    I have a problem when i leave my car for a few days i have trouble starting it.
    the engine turns but it just doent start.

    I had the AA come down and eventually got it started, but same problem has occurred. The battery goes flat if i continue to turn the engine over.
    The AA tech. said that the 'auto' choke continues to pump excess fuel even when the car is running... not sure why this would cause the start issue..

    Any ideas??

    Try unplugging the cold start injector and then see if it starts.
