1991 300E-24 Stumbles When Starting
Hello everyone! My iPhone5 refuses to let me use the search function so I am posting here. I have a non-converted left hand drive 300E-24 from Japan. It has 106,000 kms on it (66,000 mi). It runs like a dream except at start up. It fires up instantly but then stumbles for a few seconds before settling into its fast idle for warm up. I had a similar problem with an Infiniti I30 that I had that was cured by fluke when I switched from Esso gas to Petro Canada. Bizarre but that car hated Esso gas.
Thoughts on the 300E stumble? The car wasnt driven that much before I bought it.
