When I start the car in the morning it starts ok. After I drive the car and stop it for a short time is also starting without any issue. The problem is if I leave the car for 1,2 or 3 hours and I try to start it. Most of the time it will start and then it will stop after 1 second and I need to keep the starter running for a long time before it starts again and after it starts it will run just with few cylinders only. It helps if I keep the throttle pressed a bit but still too dificult. . I noticed lately that the idling looks to be ratling when engine is hot. I live in Dubai so it's hot weather. Any sugestion? Also an advice regarding the heat range of the spark plugs? Thanks
When turn on the A/C it will work a few second then blower will stop but compressor still work. Have to change the fuse but when try it again fuse will still blow after a few second.

Just bought the car. Had high idle and ABS light on. Found bad fuse for that and brought idle to normal. Runs good, oil pressure very good. After about 5 miles of driving it all of the sudden started smoking. Looks blue to me but could be lighter color. Any ideas why it didn't smoke before or what could have caused it to start smoking now or what to do to fix it? Drove the car several times prior to fixing idle and had no indications of smoking at all. Even now seems to run fine, gauges all look good, just smokes bad. Thanks for the help
Whenever I start driving the car, it doesn't accelerate properly.... I have changed almost everything and no luck yet.. any idea ??
