Hi guys

I did do a quick search for this as Im assuming someone else has had this problem and I couldnt really find anything too specific. Anyway.

I just bought a BA ute 6, its not on gas, and she generally has problems starting when the engine is warm. It usually starts up straight away in the morning, and when I leave work (so after its been sitting there for 9 hours).

If I try to start it when shes warm, it normally needs to crank over for about 5 seconds and then shakes a bit until it builds up RPM and also tends to blow out a bit of black smoke.

It doesnt really present much of a worry for me cause it always "eventually" starts, Im just a bit concerned as my previous BA sedan would start first crank every time regardless of engine temp.

New oil, new filters (oil + fuel), new sparkplugs, and been run with injector cleaner.

What else could be the problem???

HI THERE ANOTHER THING TO CHECK IS THE MAP SENSOR LOCATED ON YOU FIREWALL THESE CAN BE FAULTY AND CAUSE THE ENGINE TO NOT START OR RUN PROPERLY ALSO CHECK FOR AIRLEAKS IN ALL PLUMBING UNDER THE BONNET. THIS TOO CAN BE AN ISSUE. HOPE THIS HELPS.
