2006 648 starting issue
Yesterday Iíve been driving around all day long in the rain itís been raining for several days. In the evening after the car was sitting in a parking lot for an hour I came out and it refused to start would crank run for one, two or 3 seconds and then shut off. After about 20 attempts it ran for 6 seconds, vary rough and quit. So the next start attempt I depressed the pedal slightly and it caught, keeping it at 950 or 1000 rpm, anything less I would feel bad misfires and would see grey smoke from tail pipe, It would try to die if I let it idle around 750 until about 5 minutes warmup. Temp at that time would be about 60C And still idle rough, but less rough. At full 90C warmup, i donít feel misfires, no smoke. Turning car off and immediately back on, it starts right up without depressing the pedal after it has fully warmed up to 90C. I donít have a scanner yet so no codes, but I do not get a MIL light on the dash. 152000 miles. Since last night, it has the same starting problems when cold and I have to depress the pedal slightly. I really need to get a Star or scanner, but which I donít know yet and carry it with me all the time. Even if the engine cools off for 20 minutes it will cough until it gets back to 90C
Any thoughts on the issue?
could there be a code for this issue that doesnít throw a MIL?
I wonder if the water sensor in the filter even works, or how it works, throws codes. Something should light up on the dash.
Geting a C4will take weeks. Should I go for a Carsoft MB2
