Just a quick brain drain question :shock: .What would cause extended cranking time when starting the EF at the start of a day.Up to 30sec is required some days, starting for the remainder of a day is OK.

is the car on gas?
could be a number of things like not getting a crank angle signal, injectors although i doubt it, fuel pump not suppling fuel.
does it feel like it even wants to kick over or does it just crank for ages?
30 secs is a long time so i would tend to think of it as a computer problem eg no crank signal.
once its running does it run smooth and normal

It is gas, but it would not be starting on it when cold.Not always 30sec but always close too (cranking with no firing etc.,) .I thinking fuel but I keeping going back to the problem I had months ago and when it would not fire and there was no spark.Intermittent problem????

My Duel Fuel EA was a pig to start cold, and then the 'petrol start' gauge died.
I replaced with a non petrol start gauge and it always start beautifully on LPG and petrol afterwards.

if u got no spark it will be a crank angle sensor if u got spark put a pressure gauge on a t peice in ur fuel line and see if i holds pressure wen the car turns off if it doesnt the fuel is leaking back to the tank and u gotta crank it a while coz it takes a while to get fuel back up...
