View Full Version : Would this be causing my hard starts?

I think i may have found the culprit for the hard starts i was having. When i was checking my K&N air filter i noticed the boot that connects to the throttle body wasnt clamped on at all. It was just sitting loosely over the TB. I tightened it up and it fired up without the 3 second wait:angel. Could this of let in air without it passing through the MAF first causing the hard start?

yes, its the same as a vacume leak, your car is not reading all the air going into the eng and runs super lean. your ses light on?

No lights on the dash at all. I think it was my problem because i went to start it about 3 times now and it fired up no problem without the 3 second wait. No more embarassing starts!
