Hi! I am having a problem with my 92 Mitsubishi Mirage 1.5 L starting. It takes 30-40 minutes to get enough "juice" to finally start after turning the key...then stop, turn the key...stop. Once it has been started it will start easily and runs well with a slight surge when slowing down to turn corners, etc. Very slight hesitation when driving on the highway. This cold start thing is a real problem. It was suggested that it might be a cold start injector but the auto parts store says this model does not show having this part. Older model imports, such as the Toyota have them but it seems the Mirage doesn't. Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated.

Have you kept up with the engine maintenance?

Is the check engine light on? Check fuel pressure with a new fuel filter installed if you have not replaced it recently..
