Wrenchin’ Tip – Cold Starting Racing Engine – 03/06/10

Now I don’t have to worry about this too much, my cars are daily drivers and are pretty much stock.  But if you have car with a racing carb with no choke, starting it in the mornings is tough.  This might help.

1.  Pump the accelerator to the floor a couple times.

2. Start the engine while holding the pedal at about 1/4 throttle position and turn the engine over.

3. After the engine starts, hold the RMPs up around 2k or 3k this get the engine warmed up and she’ll be ready for the strip

Thanks for reading.  If you got a Wrench’n Tip post it up.
