Mein Auto: 1988 E30 Super ETA 325
Hard starting in Winter

Just a question

I've noticed my 525 is hard to start in the winter. Anytime the temp drops below 30 degrees. The car is kept in a garage. But I don't usually drive it everyday. Sometimes it'll sit for 10 days without being driven.

My wife went to start it today and it took 3 times before it fired up. She had to hold her foot on the gas pedal for a few seconds before it fired up on the third attempt.

The battery seems fine. I'm sure it was probably a little low since we had not driven it in 7 days. There are not any check engine lights. I just put new spark plugs in it a month ago.

Maybe the fuel pressure bleed off? I'm not sure. Its running fine now.
