'98 Suburban Hard to Start
'98 Suburban all factory equipment, 350, 4wd, auto, 103,000 miles
It's gotten to where when it's cold (ambient temp) on initial startup it seems like a cylinder is hydraulicing or kinda like an older engine with the timing advanced too far. Sometimes it takes a few tries to get it started. Once the engine starts and warms up some (5 min or so), you can shut it off and it will restart like normal everytime as well as when it's up to normal operating temp. It's running great like normal when it does start. It's only doing it while cold.
Here's what's been checked/changed:
New Crank Position Sensor
New Dist. cap, rotor, wires, plugs
Battery terminals checked cleaned.
New spacer & bolt on positive double cable
Removed all spark plugs while cold, no fuel or water present
No water in oil
No check engine light
